St Helena Island is Queensland’s most historic island. Conveniently located in Moreton Bay just four kilometres from the mouth of the Brisbane River, this beautiful National Park was home to hundreds of society’s outcasts for more than 60 years. Here stood colonial Queensland’s foremost maximum security prison for men. Bit quirky but its something out of the ordinary. Generally you will be the only ones walking around the place to make it just that bit more eery.
After this head to peel island island where you can spend some time at the beautiful horseshoe bay before going across the island to platypus bay where there is a ship wreck and some reef to snorkel on.
By this time you should be hungry enough to do the short journey over to north Stradbroke island where you can find a couple returants and small takeaway places to eat. have a stroll round this random town out of curiosity…….
We recommend starting at port of Brisbane so you can eat at the end of your trip before heading home…
Make sure the jet ski is full of petrol and you have some water for the first half of the day.
