Hi! Welcome to Bay Islands Art & Scenic tours! Our boutique tours are designed for small groups up to 9 people to provide a personalised experience. I will take you around the islands to enjoy the beautiful coastline and scenic views. You will see a variety of ecological habitats including tidal mudflats and mangroves, coastal eucalypt forest, melaleuca wetlands and subtropical rainforest. We will discover bush tucker (edible plants) and see a wide variety of birdlife. You may spot turtles, dolphins and even dugongs in the bay, and observe the tidal changes. We will see historical artefacts and learn some of the history of the islands, taking in the islands' quirky houses and gardens along the way. We will also be checking out the local art & craft studios where you will meet the artists and crafts people see some of their unique creations and hear about their inspirations. Each of the islands is different and has its own energy and vibe. On all of them, visitors notice the relaxed feel and slower pace of life, reminiscent of an earlier time.
A delicious morning tea and lunch will be provided; and to round off the day, I invite you to my home to participate in a short workshop using copper. You will learn how to create a beautiful embossed copper leaf to take home with you as a memento of the day.
Transport on the islands is a mix of driving and walking in small sections not more than 3km. Please wear appropriate clothing and shoes (no high heels), hat and sunscreen (refer to guidelines).
