Best way to see and explore Stradbroke island!!
Jul 2021 • Friends
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!

Best birthday ever.
Feb 2021
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.

Straddie Dave, what a great host!
Mar 2019 • Couples
We had the best day ever on Stradbroke Island on a Kingfisher Tour with our great host Dave!
Started with a beach run down to Amity Point where we saw a heap of wildlife in their natural habitat. Lots of kangaroo's, (must be well fed over there as some were huge!) follow up with spotting Koala's munching away on their gum leaves. Off to the beach side and stroll along the Amity jetty, Had hoped to spot a dolphin and we were not disappointed, a whole pod was hanging out and seemed very interested in us! An unexpected bonus was a Manta Ray cruising by in the crystal clear water.

All this sounds good but the best was yet to come, we all hoped back into Dave's Landcruiser and headed off to Brown Lake for a swim is this stunning freshwater lake. The brown colour is stain from the tee-tree's, the water is beautiful not dirty at all. After a picnic lunch by the lake we head off for a bit of 4WD through the central part of the island before hitting the surf beach.

It is absolutely stunning. Not another sole just us and nature, sea eagles soaring above and dolphins riding the waves. Doesn't get much better except for Dave's home made damper washed down with billy tea.

Great Day, thanks Dave

4WD eco tour
Sep 2018 • Couples
We did a Tag-along tour with Dave and his 6hr 4WD eco tour. Dave is the nicest guy and we had a really good trip around North Stradbroke Island with him. He is very friendly and has plenty of interesting stories to tell. He is obviously knowledgeable about the area and was able to give us plenty of tips about driving on the sand and how to get out of any tight spots! We highly recommend doing any of the adventures available through Straddie Kingfisher tours.
Thanks for everything Dave 😄

Perfect guide to explore the exquisite Minjerribah (Stradbroke Island)
Jul 2018 • Family
We had a fantastic day visiting Minjerribah with Barefoot Dave as our guide. The Island is spectacular, the colours so intense and refreshing and Dave has the knack of making sure you see things you might have missed and not distracting you. We had the opportunity to 4WD along picture perfect beaches feeling the breeze and watching the waves and whales out to sea. There wasn't a thing to worry about, Dave had morning tea and lunch sorted and a schedule that felt like no schedule at all, just a relaxing day soaking up the beauty. This was my second Tour with Dave and I dream of going again. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Such a great experience — even for QLD locals
We saw koalas, kangaroos, soooo many whales, pods of dolphins, a turtle, and some of the most beautiful beaches you’ll ever see. Of course, we probably were really lucky — maybe you won’t always see all this in one trip, for various reasons (the weather, the seasons, the swell), but maybe you will 🤷🏻‍♂️

The food is traditional Australian camping fare and was really tasty and filling. Dave has really mastered the art and couldn’t have been a better host! He has lived on the island most of his life. His local knowledge is so interesting and he’ll often share interesting facts about the flora, fauna, and the occasional joke 😂

Highly recommend 👌🏻

A great relaxing day to connect with nature
Apr 2018 • Family
What a wonderful day! The sky was blue and the water was lots of hues of blue. We saw koalas and dolphins and learnt a lot about the island from Dave.
He made us fresh warm damper and billy tea in the traditional way and cooked a mean BBQlunch.
We had exciting times, for us, along the beach in the 4WD and the tag-along convoy.
Clear your head and connect with nature and have a great time with Dave.

Straddie Kingfisher Tours ... your ONE STOP activities for anything you want to do on Stradbroke Island. The best think about this business is that one phone call can book sand boarding, kayaking, eco tours, four wheel driving, fishing, tag along touring ... if i knew Dave was offering this All in one service last year it would have saved my trying to make all the phone calls to individual operators which was painful. Its also nice to hear 'in Dave's humble opinion' that customers have said best day of their life and i know he mean what he said here because he was almost embarrased being so honest. Thanks Dave, best day of my life.

Best way to experience North Stradbroke! Can't recommend it enough...
Jun 2017 • Couples
SO happy we decided to take a 4WD Eco Tour with 'Barefoot Dave' (as everyone calls him!). Definitely one of the highlights of our whole Australia trip. Dave was excellent to communicate with via email before the trip, sending extremely straight forward notes about how to get to the ferry, which ferry to take etc. He was there to meet us as we stepped off in Dunwich with his 4WD and a huge smile. We could have spent days talking with Dave, listening to all of the amazing bits of knowledge he had to share as he took us around the island. His vehicle was comfy and new... his driving clearly that of an experienced resident. We had delicous damper by the Tea Tree lake, spotted koalas, kangaroos, dolphins, incredible birds, and various other wildlife. We sampled some 'bush tucker' that Dave found on our adventures. He happily accommodated our request for a vegetarian lunch, which was delicious and filling. We were shocked to find out that most Brisbane residents have never been to North Stradbroke! It's such a gem! While one could certainly tour around on their own, they'd never learn all of the amazing things we did from Dave. Can't recommend him and his tours enough. Thanks Dave!

Such an amazing Eco tour!
Apr 2017 • Friends
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!
