Brisbane Whale Watching invites you to come on board the magnificent Eye-Spy for an encounter with the whales. There’s no better place to observe the mighty Humpback than Brisbane’s Moreton Bay.
I was scheduled to go on this trip on a Friday, and sat at the meeting point for over 40 minutes waiting to be collected, only to find that it had been cancelled, so instead it was rearranged for the following Monday. By the time the tour bus had stopped to pick everyone up, it was just over an hour before we arrived in Redcliffe to walk out to the jetty to board the lovely Eyespy. I'd paid for the VIP ticket, which meant a separate air-conditioned cabin with a table and guaranteed window view, and it included a free drink and buffet lunch (I didn't partake in lunch so can't comment on this side of the trip). As it was almost the end of the season, and a week day to boot, there was probably no more than 60 people onboard, which meant that over the three decks there was plenty of room for people to spread out to get good shots of the whales. I'm not sure how easy that would have been if the ship was at full capacity. We were lucky enough to see three pods of whales during out time out, though the coveted "breaches" where the whales jump right out of the water, were at a distance, so you'd only have been able to capture those shots with a professional camera and zoom lens. We did see lots of rolling, slapping of tails and fins though - It's easy to get too wrapped up in trying to capture the perfect shot and not just taking the time to appreciate the beauty of witnessing this once almost extinct creature in all of its beauty - so I actually put my camera away and chose to be in the moment. A word of warning, it was a cloudy day with a strong breeze out on the water, so I didn't notice how strong the sun actually was and came away with quite painful sunburn - always put your suncream on when out on the water! It's heartbreaking to think that these magnificent creatures were hunted and killed in such a barbaric manner, thank goodness they are now protected and their numbers are increasing year on year. A very enjoyable day out, sunburn aside!

There are so many wonderful walks to select from offering fantastic views both of the Gold Coast and the ranges. Some involve a moderate level of fitness others are easy. Lots of well maintained picnic areas with lots of native birds and other wildlife. Plenty of Lookouts too, if walking is not your thing.

SkyPoint Climb takes place on the top of the Q1 building in Surfers Paradise and at 270 metres in the air, it is one of Australia's highest external building walks. Starting on level 77 of SkyPoint Observation Deck, Climbers will enter the open air dressed in a full body suit and harness. Following their Climb guide, participants will then traverse up towards the crow's nest located at the highest point of the Climb at around 270 metres above the ground. Regular stops will be taken to admire the stunning 360 degree views of the Gold Coast region including the golden Beaches, city skyline and lush green hinterland. Climbers will then descend to level 77. Altogether the experience takes approximately 90 minutes including a briefing session and the time on the Climb course.
I really had a great experience as our tour guide was Tayla and complemented with some great commentary and Facts.Tayla made everyone feel very comfortable within the group.I would definitely recommend this Experience to anyone that is on the Gold Coast.

The Tamborine Mountain Distillery (“the Company”) is a successful Queensland, based business, that for the last quarter of a century has produced and distributed several specialized liqueurs and spirits for local, regional, national distribution, although has had significant interest shown for the international market. The Company was founded in 1993 by Michael and Alla Ward and has grown over the years into an iconic tourism facility and award winning liqueur brand.
Since our last visit the distillery has changed hands. The new owners were very welcoming and seem to be settling in well. We enjoyed a sample of the wonderful selection on offer, it was so hard to decide which to purchase. a visit is highly recommended.
