The Stradbroke Ferries water taxi, Escape to Stradbroke, operates 7 days a week with up to 14 return services daily. The water taxi carries up to 170 passengers.

Journey Time

The trip takes 25 mins and most services connect with the local island bus, which travels up to Point Lookout. 


Bookings are not required for the water taxi service. Purchase your tickets at either of the Cleveland offices or at Dunwich before boarding. When the offices are closed, you can purchase a ticket on board with cash or EFTPOS. 

Dogs on board

Dogs are allowed on board, however for the safety of crew and other passengers, we ask that they be kept on a lead. 

Bus from Cleveland train station

There is a connecting bus from the Cleveland train station (route 258) which departs approximately 20 minutes prior to the water taxi departure. You can check timetables and prices on the Translink Journey Planner
