“If you ever get the chance to travel to North Stradbroke Island, Australia, make sure you do the gorge walk. The beauty of North Stradbroke is that fifty percent of the Island is a national park allowing its natural beauty to maintain its alluring presence, and the gorge walk nothing short of alluring! An easy 1.2 kilometer (one way) walk around the northern point of the island will take you past an array of animals such as sea eagles, turtles and kangaroos. The opportunity to wander off the trail invites you to explore the white and tuscan colored cliffs that overlook the Pacific Ocean. The crystal clear blue water makes it easy to spot surfing dolphins and migrating whales.
