Had an incredible time on the 4WD tour on Stradbroke island. Dave took us to all the great sites and offered lots of informative and fun facts alone the way. He was able to answer all our questions regarding the island and it’s history. We had delicious morning tea and lunch all prepared by Dave while we got to go for a swim and explore the beaches and lakes. Would 100% recommend to anyone considering doing a tour as driving along the beach and the local knowledge was amazing. My friend and I are 21 and both thoroughly enjoyed it so is definitely suitable for everyone.

Thank you Majella, What makes the tour fantastic for me is the wonderful people I get to meet on a daily basis. Not to mention all the wildlife we see along the way as well. I hope you make a success of your careers and Melbourne heats up a bit for you both. Keep safe!

We were collected from our holiday home right on time. The weather was against us but Dave managed to turn it into the most memorable day ever. What a perfect way to celebrate a special birthday. Plan B was the overall message of our day as the weather gods tried to thwart Dave's every attempt to get us out of the 4WD to eat. True to form Dave found a perfect solution to the rain. We all thoroughly enjoyed the driving through and around the island, places we would never have been able to visit. Dave is a true legend.

My husband and I were given a voucher as a wedding present and we decided on the full day "Eco Tour" with Straddie Kingfisher Tours. My parents who had been to Straddie several times were also keen to come. It started with a 25 minute Taxi ferry across from Cleveland to Stradbroke Island and we were met at the Jetty by Dave. Dave was very warm and welcoming and made the day fun and interesting - he knows the island very well and he really looked after us. We saw Whales, Dolphins and Manta Rays, drove along the beach, saw a tea tree lake, ate Damper with jam and a cuppa and Dave also cooked us a fabulous BBQ lunch on the beach. After lunch we had a lovely beach walk while Dave packed everything away and then we made our way back to the ferry. Dave accompanied us back to Cleveland on the Ferry and then to afternoon tea at a very interesting place called "Indigiscapes". We tried lots of very interesting and delicious food and learnt a bit about the native environment. The Lemon Myrtle butter on scones was divine as were the Duck and Davidson's plum spring rolls!!! Dave left us at this point as we had our own car to make our way home but he made us feel as though he really enjoyed spending his day with us and showing us around the island. My parents said that even though they had been to Straddie several times this was the best day and they saw more of the island than on any of their previous trips. There is no doubt that "Barefoot Dave" made the day one to remember!!

If you want to see North Stradbroke Island, no one's a better guide than Barefoot Dave of Straddie Kingfisher Tours. We travelled to Straddie with our 3 sons (11 & 14 year old twins). The highlight of their week there was sand boarding with Dave. We also did the 6 hour Eco tour which really showed you all the best features of the island in a day. I really recommend doing that on your first or second day there, to get a great overview of the place. Dave and his family have lived on Straddie since 1966. There's not much Dave doesn't know about the island. He is a very friendly and fun host who loves to share his passion for the environment. Dave's tour was recommended to us by a hotel manager who said Dave was the original and best tour to go on. Our only regret was that we didn't do one of Dave's fishing tours as well.

We booked on the Kingfisher tour on the Wednesday and we went on the Thursday. This did involve us travelling to Straddie by our own devices but Dave knocked 50% off the tour for doing this and the public transport was easy to work out and the tourist information centre staff in Brisbane were very helpful.

When we arrived on Straddie Barefoot Dave picked us up from the ferry port and we were surprised that it was just the two of us on the tour! We went to the Brown Lake and swan in the tea-tree infused waters, walked around the coast line and saw dolphins, sea turtles and a manta-ray. We then stopped and had a cup of tea on the beach with some damper cake and jam. The weather was not great, with intermittent rain showers, but Dave kept us busy and dry with a nice drive along the beachfront.

We then stopped for lunch where Dave cooked us a wonderful BBQ with an enormous tasty salad and we saw some dolphins from where we were sat eating. Then we drove through the centre of the this island off road to see some fantastic views.

Dave was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. Knows the island like the back of his hand and tailored the day to us and the weather!

Thank you so much for an awesome tour!!!
All the scenery, foods, wild life, your stories, etc. everything was just amazing and my friends and I had a wonderful day!!
Since it was my first sightseeing in Queensland, I was so glad that you were my first guide!

I am totally in love with your Island!
The Brown Lake was absolutely beautiful.
Running through the beach by your 4WD was absolutely exciting.
It was a lovely time to have lunch at the beautiful beach in an 'Aussie' way!
Thanks for the cooking as well.
The scenery from the point lookout was astonishing.

When I saw you picking up the rubbish,
I sincerely hoped for this beautiful Straddie Island to last forever.
I must visit again during my stay in Brisbane!!
And if I could visit, please be my guide again!!^^

Again, thank you for such a wonderful day.

Wishing you all the best!

Excellent experience with Dave. We arrived at Dunwich and he was already there waiting to pick us up. Went over to his garage to get fitted with the gears for snorkeling and off we went to Brown Lake for the morning tea. First time trying a damper, can't say that i liked it but it was something different from the regular bread that i usually have. After tea, off we went to the dunes for some sandboarding action. After all that action under the hot sun, Dave drove us to Cylinder beach for a cooling dip in the sea while he prepares a tasty lunch for us. Though the meal is simply sausages and salads, it was one of the best meal in the trip (probably we were all hungry and tired from the action). Then we went snorkeling !! Waves is kinda strong for us, so we didn't really get to swim out.

The day with Dave had been a wonderful one. He is friendly and easy going unlike others tours operated by bigger companies where the guide is just doing his job. For Dave, the tour is like part of his daily life. So what you get is a very personal experience with him and the island. This makes all the difference. There is no rush to meet any schedule and we can really take our time to enjoy the island.

Thank you Dave!!

I and a friend have done the tour with Dave in May and we had a great day on Stradbroke Island. It was very convenient that Dave pickes you up directly at your hotel. Dave was a really easy-going and friendly guide and we saw a lot of cool places on the island. We were at some beaches but we didn't go for a swim as the weather was not that good and it was quite cold. But nevertheless, the views of the lakes, the sea and the beaches were breathtaking. The barbecue lunch at the beach was really amazing. We could relax at the beach while Dave prepared the food (sausages). Afterwards, Dave showed us some trees with koalas which was really cool. The only disappointment was at the Bushtucker Food. The tasting of crocodile and kangoroo was the main reason for me to book this tour and not one of the cheap tours to Stradbroke Island. But when we arrived at Bushtucker, it turned out that they did not take Dave's reservation for us and therefore, they could not offer us any kangaroo or crocodile. As compensation, they gave us really small glasses of marmelade and a pencil, but nevertheless, we have paid a lot for this tour and I am sure that the kangaroo and crocodile are worth more than the two small glasses of marmelade. I would have appreciated it if we get our money back from Bushtucker for the Food tasting as we could not eat anything except the cookies. But we didn't get any monetary compensation for that. I will give 4 stars for the tour anyway because Dave felt really sorry. But in the end, it could have been a perfect tour that has been dimmed by Bushtucker.

If you are not following Dave’s excellent instructions and going by train / bus (a taxi from Brisbane cost us $75 - however it did give us time to have a leisurely breakfast) note that there are two ferry services – the one you are looking for is over to the right.
Take drinks with you– we didn't stop anywhere for purchases though Dave did supply cordial with lunch. Our BBQ lunch was served up on a pristine kilometres long beach - we enjoyed excellent snorkers (sausages) & plentiful fresh salads.
tThis was a relaxed, enjoyable look at the island and Dave is a friendly and knowledgeable guy (though sadly barracks for Carlton).
Wear sensible footwear as we did a fairly long but not strenuous boardwalk along the cliffs slowly taking in the wonderful scenery and the bluest water.
A great day out for all ages and you will see some of the most beautiful beaches ever.
