Catch the train to Cleveland station and link up with a connecting bus to the ferries at Toondah Harbour, Cleveland (translink.com.au). There are three ferry companies – Stradbroke Ferries, Big Red Cat and the Stradbroke Flyer. Stradbroke Ferries operates vehicle barges and a water taxi passenger ferry. Big Red Cat operates vehicle barges and you can also travel as a walk on passenger. The Stradbroke Flyer has passenger ferries.
The vehicle ferries take 50 minutes from Cleveland to Dunwich. The passenger ferries take 25 minutes. When you arrive at Dunwich on North Stradbroke Island, the passenger ferries link with buses to Point Lookout and at certain times the buses travel to Amity Point – check the timetable for details. Note the bus doesn’t connect with the last ferry at night so you would need to book a taxi 0408 193 685.
