    My partner & I did this tour yesterday on our 2nd day travelling from England and thought it was absolutely brilliant. We were collected from Brisbane coach terminal and caught the ferry to Moreton Island. The organisation, set up & clean up etc. from the staff was excellent. Communication from the staff was 5*, we knew exactly what we were doing and when.

    The lunch was perfect, make your own wraps with plenty of options.

    Activities were great, my favourite was the snorkelling.

    We would just like to say a massive Thankyou to the staff that were working yesterday :) Keith, Sam, Big Josh & Simon & others!

    This tour is for sure a must-book if you're in the Gold Coast, would highly recommend. Peter was an amazing guide. His experience and knowledge of the park was showcased numerous times during the trip where he would show us many scenic views and interesting facts about the wildlife and history of Springbrook. On top of that, he is also an amazing chef as the lunch catered for was delicious and appetising for all cultures. We left the national park feeling very satisfied. Even though it may be a bit pricier than other tours, the money spent was well worth its weight in gold. Thanks Peter!

    we took the tour from the gold coast .there were only 4 people in the group us and 2 people from japan.neither spoke the others language but the driver conducted a description of what we were to see and the accompanying landscape.the only words were fully understood were byron bay.i really can not fault the driver as we had problems with accents our entire trip.as we have aged our ability to discern accents has decreased.our first stop was the lighthouse .it was a short walk from the parking area to the lighthouse.the driver took our picture and i took some of the views down to the rock.i decided to take the steps down to the rocks below and to a surfing beach which the driver said was there .since i had time i start the walk.what one should realize the a walk down means a walk up steps going down were a lot more difficult coming up.i stop to take pictures and slowly made my was down,so far so good .the tow japanese girls in our group briskly walked by down to the rocks below.i made it as far as i could and i realized i would not make kit down to the rock formation below.i did get a picture of the surfers and one of the girls on the rock formation.oh ot have young legs.i started back but it was a struggle and i was drained .i told the driver guide that there was no was the girls would be back in time.i barely finished my words when they hopped into the van barely winded .next stop the town.i consisted of 3 up streets and 3 cross streets with shop and restaurants lining both sides of the street .the walk start in a drizzle but it turned into a bright sunny day.we had 3 hours to eat and shop.when we were younger 3 hours would only allow us to cover one block but we had no difficulty covering the entire town.the entire had no traffic lights nor did i see crashed cars.hard to believe.we walked to the park and beach and enjoyed the view.my wallet was happy that we did not come to the town 30 years ago as they really had some wonderful shop.we only had lunch and a pastry .this little town was beautiful and worth the one hour ride from the gold coast

    Visited 2 wineries, a distillery and fudge store. The wineries were lovely and we were offered a great selection to taste, which ended up with us buying at both. The distillery had so many choices, we were blown away... but managed to make a choice to take home. The fudge store wasn't proper fudge - more like chewy lolly - but it also sold 'proper' fudge (Scottish tablet) which we secured for our ride home. Michelle, our tour guide, was fabulous; personality plus with a wealth of knowledge. Lunch was delicious and plentiful. It's a great day out where you don't have to do much thinking aside from what you're going to buy, and which cake to have for dessert. Tough day! Definitely recommend going on this tour if you can.

    The zoo itself was great! We did arrive late but and our driver told us we were leaving the zoo between 3:15-3:30 when it was advertised we would be picked up at 4pm. So our time at the zoo was cut short due to being late to arrive at the zoo and leaving early

    We did the dawn bridge walk for our son’s 21st birthday and had an awesome experience. Our guide, Mike was great. The sunrise was perfect and we had lots of great photos to remember the experience.

    An incredible day!! A lot of beer spread out over the day and a wonderful guide to talk us through it all. A good bit of education at the first brewery about the different types of beers and the brewing process followed by 3 more breweries of interesting beers, good food, and great conversation. Very accommodating with drop off points as well! Can’t recommend highly enough, thanks Matt!

    Yesterday we went on a half day tour to Canungra for my hens day. Our driver Robin went above and beyond to make sure the day ran smoothly and everyone had a great time. She was funny, easy going and so helpful. At the end of the day she drove my mum who is unwell with cancer in her own car to meet my dad so she could get home. Amazing Robin and thank you!

    One of my friend recommended this tour! It’s a great tour with good instructors!
    Unfortunately, they cancel it due to less people opting for it!
    I think if one would sign up for this tour, then they’ll have good & pleasant experience & memories of nature & lamington national park.
