Queensland has come of age when it comes to wine and Queensland Day Tours operates a wine tasting tour to the Gold Coast Hinterland that also includes the popular and unique Mount Tamborine Distillery. Stradbroke Island is Queensland's hidden jewel and the "Day in Paradise Tour" is a great way to discover why! The Island has a large number of resident koala and kangaroo so this is always a bonus for visitors from overseas to see these unique "Australian" in the wild.

For those wanting something more physical, QDT also offers sand boarding at Stradbroke Island on the huge sand hills. They use professional equipment and both sand boards and toboggans are available for use under expert supervision.

Stradbroke Island Day in Paradise Tour

Stradbroke Island

Stradbroke Island is the most popular Island off Brisbane and is the second largest sand island in the world. It has everything to provide the visitor with a unique and memorable experience of Brisbane and Australia. Being so close to Brisbane, it has some of Australia's best beaches, a spectacular rocky headland, unique natural features, and is a genuine wilderness destination. Its waters are home to large schools of dolphin, manta rays, and turtles - all of which can be seen from the Headland. A bonus is that in Winter, Point Lookout is considered to be Australia's best land-based vantage point for spotting the migrating Humpback Whale.

Byron Bay - Beach and Hinterland Tours

Byron Bay

Byron Bay is less than two hours of easy driving from Brisbane or 1 hour from the Gold Coast. Whilst Byron is the main destination, this tour gives you the opportunity to enjoy the scenic Tweed Valley, north coast beaches, and the northern New South Wales hinterlands.

You will have plenty of time to explore Byron Bay's eclectic shopping and idyllic beaches and to take in the atmosphere that makes Byron that special destination. Your tour also includes a free optional mini-tour to the Cape Byron lighthouse and Watego's Beach.

However, before you get to Byron, they will be breaking your journey travelling through the northern beach villages of Pottsville and Hastings Point before arriving at Cabarita Beach. Stretch your legs while they explore the headland and the unique littoral Rainforest.

Next stop will be Bangalow. This historical town in the hinterland behind Byron is now being referred to as the "new Byron" with its trendy shops and cafes (plenty of time for a coffee), whilst retaining that country Australia charm. A short hop across the mountains gives us a birds-eye view of Byron and the iconic lighthouse before they reach magical Byron Bay late morning.
