It always great fun doing a beach walk on North Stradbroke Island. We will catch the ferry over to Dunwich then get the bus out to Amity Point. (I wanted to go earlier than 8:55 water taxi but the first bus to Amity leaves at 9:25 am)
From Amity we will walk around a few streets to get access to the beach. It is then a long beach walk along the northern edge of North Stradbroke Island. First along Flinders Beach, then Cylinder, Beach Deadman’s Beach around the point to Frenchman’s Beach and up the stairs to Point Lookout. We will a quick walk around the Gorge Walk. (Hopefully the repairs are completed). We will then catch the bus back to Dunwich at about 3:20 pm. You need to bring your own morning tea and lunch. It is expected to be warm and sunny so bring all your usual daywalk stuff. (Plus raincoats). May I suggest you wear hats, long sleeves and long pants to minimise the chance of sunburn.
Please note, the low tide is at 11:19 am so the tide should be going out by the time we start walking and it will be starting to rise at the end of the walk. Please note the walk will be at a medium pace so we don’t have problems with the rising tide late in the afternoon.
Distance 14 km approximately
