Your family/group will need to catch the 08.55 am Water Taxi from Cleveland to Dunwich. The boat ride takes you across Moreton Bay arriving in Dunwich at 09.20 am. We will meet you as you step ashore (can’t miss me & vehicle). We then travel through Dunwich (looking for koalas) to Main Beach. Here we stop and have a Cuppa and some “Aussie Damper” for morning tea (looking for whales and driving along with them)
When we arrive at the North Gorge approx 9 km of beach driving there is FREE time to do the complete North Gorge walk. This is the most Easterly Point in Queensland very popular for its beautiful blue scenic outlook. Whilst looking for more majestic Humpback Whales you can also spot other life in the blue water. Dolphins,turtles, manta rays and sharks can be seen from this vantage point as they swim along.
Lunch is provided at the “Captain Cook’s seat” just in front of a grassy hill with a great view. Food you can carry around like egg and lettuce sandwiches or ham & salad rolls, cake, fruit plus a drink.
After lunch more Whale Watching until 2.00pm when we drive back to Dunwich for your return. We catch the 2.25 pm water taxi back to Cleveland so you will be in Cleveland at approx 3.00 pm. You do have an option to stay at Point Lookout and return via bus at a later time if it suits you.
