This tour launches at GJ Walter Park located at the end of Short Street East, below the Grandview Hotel. This park has panoramic views looking over nearby Cassim Island toward North Stradbroke Island. You can have a BBQ picnic at the gazebos and sit and wathc the Stradbroke Ferries come and go.
This part is surrounded by Norfolk Pines and Moreton Bay Fig Trees.
The tour departs from a sandy gravel beach dotted with red volcanic rock under the water’s surface. The tour follows the shoreline passing the Courthouse Restaurant which was built in 1853. We kayak around Cleveland Point and past the historic Cleveland Lighthouse originally built in 1864. After a short rest break looking over the bay towards Wellington Point we return back around Cleveland Point and hug the shoreline back to GJ Walter Park. If there is time a quick trip out to Cassim Island to paddle amongst the shallow waters is always a great end to a great trip.
