Best day trip out of Brisbane!

I had the best time on the Bribie Island tour! We chose the pick up option in the city and were so happy with the service. The tour itself was so fun. Our guide gave us a detailed history of the island and showed us tons of wildlife, including jellyfish and a sea snake. Lunch was amazing and the service was even better. I would highly recommend this tour for students looking for a fun weekend trip!

Sealife was amazing! My 17month old had an incredible time. Staff were lovely and friendly. The sealife was absolutely fascinating
