Hear dreamtime legends in the shadow of the Glasshouse Mountains before travelling home in time for lunch.
A relaxed little cruise of the Bribie passage
A relaxed little cruise of the Bribie passage. Very knowledgeable commentary from the Tour Guide gave a wonderful insight into local wildlife and history. Self-focusing binoculars and booklets available for passengers to borrow. The skipper was flexible and happy to turn the boat around for people to better view and photograph wildlife. A tasty morning tea which I found disappointing as one dry biscuit was all that was available after I had enquired in advance if I needed to bring my own gluten free and was told they would provide.
A great experience by relaxing cruise very knowledgeable commentary great way to kill 2.5 hrs and stop and have lunch at the tavern on the return is recommende
