idea Please note: Kat and Caron will be using their cars to travel around the island for this event so numbers are limited to 10 only and the cost of the return ferry is included in the price.

Kat and Caron will be taking you on this magical adventure to Minjerribah.

We'll start the day early catching the 7am car ferry from Cleveland across to North Stradbroke, now known as Minjerribah.(Don't worry there's a café where you can buy coffee! sleep).

Arriving at Dunwich around 7.45am we will kick off by walking the 6km return Kaboora track to Kaboora Lake/Blue Lake. This easy walk passes through woodlands with stunted eucalypts, banksia and heath. The edges of the lake are thickly vegetated making it a haven for many animals and birds including honeyeaters, lorikeets, grebes and ducks, we may even grab a glimpse of the rare golden wallaby unique to Peel and the Stradbroke islands. Karboora is a place of significant cultural value to the Quandamooka people and they request that visitors respect that significance by not swimming in the lake. There will be time to enjoy morning tea here.

After our walk we will then drive to Cylinder beach for a well earned cooling swim in some of the clearest water you will find. Beach showers are available to rinse off and change.

After our swim it's time for lunch at the iconic Stradbroke Hotel (at your expense) before we finish the day with a walk around North Gorge (approx. 1.3kms) looking for the migrating Humpback whales that frequently pass close by, and are often seen resting just off the gorge. Bring your binoculars if you have them! Apart from the whales we will hopefully see kangaroos, koalas as well as sea life such as manta rays, turtles and dolphins if they're feeling friendly on the day.

Council parking is available on the opposite side of the road to the sealink terminal as well as along Middle Street heading down to the terminal locations. This parking is free but limited so please try to arrive earlier to allow time to park.

What a lovely day out. The weather was just about perfect. Cool (not hot) and no rain.

I have done this walk before and I enjoyed the second time just as much as the first time. Jazzy had so much info about the places we were passing. She definitely puts the effort in to keep us informed about our own “Backyard”…..
