Stradbroke Island Tour

We were met at Dunwich Ferry by Stradbroke Island Kingfisher Tours and in the 4WD vehicle we went on the day tour. We drove through Dunwich and then went on the Brown Lake Road towards Brown Lake.

A natural perched lake, pure rainwater tinged brown by the native teatrees, Brown Lake, or Lake Bummiera, is a hidden treasure. There are barbecue and picnic facilities and easy road access just 3.5kms outside Dunwich. Popular swimming place and picnic spot. The lake is visible from the carpark. The calm tranquility of the lake is entrancing, especially if you visit in the early morning or late afternoon. In spring, wildflowers dot the surrounding bushland. Lake Bummiera has special significance to the local Aboriginal people, and if you visit at a quiet time of day you’ll feel the magic

One of the 2 largest and most sacred lakes on the island. Both Kaboora and Bummiera are acknowledged as being the home of an extraordinarily huge carpet snake. It’s spirit resides in both lakes with the jargon attributed with being able to travel from one lake to another. The old Quandamooka people cautioned those that swam and skied on the lakes, so sacred were these lakes that old people would not approach them without a special acknowledgement

Then we drove to Main Beach for a drive on the sand to Point Lookout where we had lunch and a look from the surf club before driving on the sand to the Gorge.

Finally we went looing for a Koala and then drove on the sand to Amity Point before returning to Dunwich for the ferry back to Cleveland.
