Bribie Island consists of a small village on the southern end and national park on the rest of the island where few people really explore. One of the most interesting ways to visit Bribie Island is to kayak across Pumicestone Channel to the far tip of the island.
Pumicestone Channel is a quiet body of water that lies between Bribie Island and the mainland. This sheltered stretch of water is often as smooth as class. The photos taken from when we went there during high winds, yet the channel was still quite comfortable to kayak in.
Two popular options to cross the channel are either at the southern end of the island near the bridge or from Golden Beach, Caloundra. We paddled the northern end from Golden so that we could go to the rarely visited northern spit of Bribie Island.
If you don't have your own Kayak you can hire one from Golden Beach. We hired our Kayaks from Golden Beach Hire. Kayaks around around $15-20 an hour and you can paddle to Bribie Island, explore and return within 2 hours.
Once over at Bribie Island it is only a short walk across the island to the seaward side of the island. The narrowest point on the northern end is only 50 meters across.
There are many beautiful areas to explore in the Pumicestone Passage, the old wreck & the sandy inlets up around the northern 4WD camping areas.
We recently went on a Kayak Tour with simon fromhttp://bribiehirehut.com.au and it was an enjoyable afternoon that we will do again.
