Stradbroke Island (again)

The Redcliffe Cardiac Group enjoyed another lovely bus trip to Stradbroke Island.   Sure the weather could have been kinder as it was a little cloudy and we did have a bit of drizzle at times, but it stayed away while we enjoyed morning tea at Brown Lake and later when we did the gorge walk. We encountered kangaroos and many birds along the track which added to one of the most enjoyable places to walk that I’m aware of. (You don’t need to be an athlete either.)

After the walk we had a very nice lunch at the Point Lookout Bowls Club, where all I spoke to had nothing but praise for the meal. The staff at the Club were very courteous and helpful.

Lunch finished we ventured back to Dunwich and visited the Stradbroke Island Museum. This proved to be a real education as many articles revealed both hardships and pleasures encountered by Island locals, also much memorabilia was on display from times gone by.

We travelled with Redcliffe Coaches and Merv the driver was great, he left it to us to decide what we would like to see. A run out to Amity Point and then a drive around millionaires row was no problem at all.

All in all it was a very lovely trip that was well supported by members. I would like to thank Social Committee man Bob Sutton for his excellent work organising this trip.
