This tour starts by driving along the beach visiting Norfolk Lagoon & Mermaid Lagoon. These areas provide fantastic photo ops with friends and iconic Australian wildlife and scenery. For Mermaid Lagoon we jump back in the 4WD and head north along the pristine beach to our next destination.
Arriving at the WWII Bunkers (Fort Bribie) you’ll be amazed by the history of these great forts built in the 1940’s. There will be plenty of time to explore and learn the history of these structures, that are slowly descending into the ocean and may one day cease to exist.
After the WWII Fort Bribie tour we head south with plenty of time to keep a look out for local dolphins. The tour ends by returning you to your original pickup point.

- WWII Bunkers
There are 11 bunkers located along the northern end of Bribie Island surf beach, dubbed “Fort Bribie”. These fortifications were built between 1939 and 1943 as part of the South East Queensland military defence, during World War II.
They were also used to provide artillery training for Australian soldiers. Legend has it there was also an underground hospital constructed around this time that has since been covered over and hidden.
- Norfolk Lagoon
Bribie Island hosts 4 semi-tidal lagoons. Fresh water creek, Norfolk lagoon, Mermaid lagoon & Welsby lagoon. The water in each lagoon appears golden-brown in colour. This is due to the tea-tree plants that populate the area and that have naturally stained the water over time.
When these lagoons finally break open, it is quite the sight as these golden-brown waters spill over and rush down to the crystal blue ocean water. This makes quite an exciting 4WD experience when crossing from one side of the break to the other.
