Hi All, thanks for the suggestions.
I should have said that we are cruising from new Zealand to Sydney on Solstice and then are doing a land tour for 12 days and we had one day at the end in Brisbane that we had no plans for. We do not have a vehicle and that is why the thought of a local tour to Stradbroke might peek our interest as the pictures looked nice.
Is Tangalooma Resort on Moreton Island a better choice for a day of relaxing and seeing different part of the area?
Can anyone suggest a good reliable tour company to use?
Any help is always appreciated!
There is nothing wrong with Straddie, it's a beautiful island. The main difference between it and Moreton Island is that Moreton is essentially wild and undeveloped (apart from the Tangalooma Resort) and Straddie has a number of sizable towns on it and well developed roads and such in the northern part of the island.
I can't tell you about tour companies as I have only ever been to both islands in my own vehicle. I think that Tangalooma is better set up for tourists and the tours for Moreton island all start from there. They have the dolphin feeding there, which I don't agree with, but to each his own.
If you want a 4WD sand driving experience Moreton is definitely the go. If I only had one day that is what I would do.
The town of Point Lookout on Straddie is a great place to stay. Outstanding views from almost everywhere, especially this time of year when the whales start to pass by the point on their migration.
