Our 1/2 day tour includes a luxury boat cruise to and from South Stradbroke Island.On the island you drive your own 4wd Buggy on our 90 minute tour of the island. During this tour you get to drive over sand dunes,on the beautiful beach and through the bush roads.We stop for some sand boarding and to swap drivers during the tour before we head back to the Island Resort for some segway fun. Here you get to ride your own segway through our bush course. Once you have finished you can head down to the island resort, where you can go for a swim in their pools,purchase food and drinks before heading back to the mainland

Myself and my partner booked the tour and highly recommend it. It was great fun on the buggys and the segways. Ended up eating a lot of sand with the sand boarding but totally worth it.

What an amazing day, with a variety of activities all delivered professionally and with a sense of humour by Hamish and Amanda. The guys were great from start to finish - I couldn't recommend them more. An epic day in an amazing location!
