Description

Experience the natural beauty of the Pumicestone Passage Marine Park, see the majestic Glasshouse Mountains and visit many areas only accessible by The Ferryman. These living waterways are home to dugong, dolphins, turtles, dingoes, jabiru, sea eagles, osprey and many of the 360 species of birds recorded in this area - some migrating each year from the Northern Hemisphere. The Ferryman tours up the Pumicestone Passage which runs between Bribie Island and the mainland towards Caloundra and takes in the shipwreck of the SS Avon, then the township of Toorbul, and follows the historic channel that Mathew Flinders found over 200 years ago - past Donnybrook.

Immediately turn sharp left at the end of the bridge onto Sylvan Beach Esplanade and follow this road for about 350 metres. The road will split in a V, keep left and continue down this short dead end cul-de-sac which is directly opposite the Bribie Island Hotel. Road side parking (including disabled parking) as well as a bus turnaround area and bus parking is available here. There you will find a cement path which will take you to the steps, where you will commence boarding directly from the beach 15 minutes prior to departure.
