100 East Coast Road, North Stradbroke Island, Queensland 4183
Yura! (Welcome) to you.
Come and see the naturally beautiful Quandamooka Coast and experience our unique local Aboriginal culture with Quandamooka Coast Tours.
Quandamooka Coast is the waters and islands of Central and Southern Moreton Bay and the coastal land and streams between the Brisbane to Logan Rivers.
Quandamooka People are people of the sand and sea and have lived on Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) for a very long time.
Three clans comprise the Peoples of the Quandamooka. They are the Nughi of Mulgumpin (Moreton Island) and the Nunukul and Gorenpul of Minjerribah.
Quandamooka people have a deep spiritual connection to their country and they are now excited to share their rich culture and heritage with you – through art, stories, dance, language and songs - as cultural tourism experiences.
They invite you to immerse yourself in a total Quandamooka experience with Quandamooka Coast Tours.
A feast for the senses, you’ll see first-hand their unique ancient traditions, taste delicious native bush tucker and be delighted by Yalingbila, Australia’s only Aboriginal whale watching tours.
Quandamooka Coast Tours is managed by QYAC (Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation).
