Australia Day


Australia Day is fast approaching and once again we expect it to be a very busy day for both our passenger ferry and vehicle barge services. As Australia Day will fall on a Friday we have decided to operate a normal Friday time table and not the public holiday timetable so that there will be more services available for passengers.

We ask that all passengers consider their luggage carefully and remember that all beach trolleys and large items such a portable gazebos and large beach umbrellas are transported on the vehicle barge only as the passenger ferries are usually at capacity and have limited storage space.

We realise that at times there could be a wait for the passenger ferry and we ask that you treat our staff with courtesy and respect as they are doing their best to help get everyone to and from Coochiemudlo Island safely.

No need to book the ferry, passengers can buy tickets on board with Eftpos facilities available.
Available for passenger vehicles, trailers, boats, trucks, motorbikes. Prior bookings are essential.
Commercial and Private Barge or Ferry Charters available from Brisbane to Gold Coast
