Coastal Island Safaris is a family owned and operated award winning business which has been the premier North Stradbroke Island tour operator for nearly 25 years.  We welcome all to join our CIS family to show you the  knowledge and love for which we have acquired during our many years of experience.
 Come and explore the unforgettable North Stradbroke Island also known as Minjerribah.  Being the 2nd largest sand island in the world, stretching 35km's, it has sand dunes over 200m high, eucalyptus forests, sub-tropical areas, typical Australian bush and hidden crystal clear lakes which you will experience with a full-day all inclusive 4WD Eco tour in air-conditioned vehicles.
 We pick up and drop off from locations between Gold Coast to Brisbane. Then go across Morton Bay via ferry during which  scrumptious morning and afternoon (on the return trip) teas are provided.
 Once on the island you will explore all the island has to offer.
 The tour starts on remote exhilarating 4WD tracks through the island with breath taking views from the top of the sand dunes that can only be accessed by 4WD vehicles.  Swim in crystal clear lakes such as Brown Lake, soak up the fresh air, then have an aboriginal culture and artefact presentation. 
Your experience is not over yet, We then drive along white pristine beaches and take a walk thru the picturesque gorge where Dolphins, Turtles, Manta Rays and Whales can be seen from view points above the magnificent Pacific Ocean. Then comes everyone's favourite-a big delicious Aussie BBQ lunch right on the beach. While the experienced drivers/tour guides prepare your lunch there are fishing, swimming, games and activities for you to enjoy or simply relax on the magnificent beach.
 We then drive you slowly back to your destination while you talk about and compare your favourite experiences of the day.
Not only is there extensive culture, flora and fauna around the island to be viewed – you can also expect to see Whales, Dolphins, Turtles, Koalas, Kangaroos, Bird life, Dugons and much more. 
Plenty of laughs and fun are to be had all day long.
