We’re lucky in Queensland… and we know it. Our choices are endless when it comes to beaches in the south-east, and our coastline neighbours with many magnificent islands, in fact, almost 2,000 of them.
But when you think of ways of getting to places like South Straddie, cycling typically doesn’t come to mind. Though have you ever heard of a water bike? Seaway Water Bike Tours are Gold Coast-based, and they’re proud to own the world’s most advanced… fortunately for us, this was our mode of transport for the day!
Offering a tour named Wallaby Aussie Adventure, will see you depart from the Gold Coast, and within a short 30 minutes, you’ll arrive at the shores of South Straddie. As the name of the tour suggests, you might be lucky enough to spot a few furry friends on your arrival. This is where the wallaby feeding begins. They are cute little fellas, but you’ll have to be quiet – they don’t like being chased!
From there, the tour continues with a bushwalk where you’ll cross to the other side of South Straddie, and it’s here you can really take in this wonderful strip of nature.
You’re free to explore the island, and of course, finish the tour with an included waterside breakfast before your cycle back to Biggera Waters begins. It truly shows the beauty of our backyard here in Queensland… reminding us to #HolidayHereThisYear.
