Location is in Tweed Heads (NSW). They operate on Queensland time. 30 mins drive from Surfers Paradise. If you drive you can easily miss the turnoff into a small road leading to the attraction. No signage at all. We relied fully on the GPS, so was fine, provided you plotted the location correctly. Tour and lunch is rather expensive. you have a choice of tour only without lunch. Booking essential. Morning tour was full so we got a call to informed us we managed to get on the afternoon tour (not advertised on website). Good service in that sense. Not sure the staff were too happy with the extended working hours (?)
Kids enjoyed feeding the pelicans from the boat and the yabby pumping experience. You get off the boat on a sand bank (shorts preferably otherwise jeans folded to knee). Very interesting activity for younger kids. Not sure it was really yabbies though!.
Pulling up the crab pod (left overnight) gave the tourists instant gratification of catching the crabs right away with no waiting time - this is the most touristy bit (I guess). Photo shoot follows with the crabs. The boat supplied baits and fishing rods for some fishing experience. You actually get to pull up some fishes. Great for young kids going to the nature (as opposed to the themeparks).
Recommended for younger family with kids. Expect overseas tourist on organized tours joining the boat tour.
