Boat Ride to Stradbroke Island

Lady Caroline

The Lady Caroline is a boat built for the Community by students at BYC Cooperative, and currently it is based at Russell Island. Every Thursday a small group enjoy a boat ride. Today the Boat went to Tipplers Licensed Café at South Stradbroke Island.

It was a beautiful day and perfect for the water. The Lady Caroline is moored at one of the private jetties at Wahine Drive Boat Ramp. The Community Bus transported the group here and we boated along Canaipa Passage past Stradbroke Island …Russell Island, 3km by 8km, is separated from North Stradbroke Island by Canaipa Passage and extends down almost as far as Jumpinpin Bar between North and South  Stradbroke Island

Pelicans were on Sandbanks preening and enjoying the beautiful Day. W saw them on the way there and again on the return trip where they were collected on the sandbanks

Tipplers is a popular resort and the waters were lined with some very expensive water craft. Its a popular lunch spot and as well as luxury motor boats, there were jet skis and small fishing boats. Tipplers is just past Jumpinpin and the slippery sands

We went back along Stradbroke Island where the white sand meets the ocean on the other side. Erosion has taken place along the sands and many trees barely hang in there by their roots. The constantly moving sand has created colourful patterns on the edges. The trip from Russell island to Tipplers takes 2 hours at a steady pace. It was a very relaxing outing and enjoyed by us all.
