A Slice of Heaven - Pumicestone Passage
As you leave the end of your Bribie Pontoon to paddle on your kayak or set off in a day trip in your boat. The perfect destination, for you to get a little lost with friends, is somewhere along the Pumicestone Passage.
The Pumicestone Passage is a narrow stretch of waterway between Bribie Island and the mainland stretching to Caloundra in the North and as far as Deception Bay in the South. The area is know as a marine park with 24 islands bounded by 240 kilometers of shoreline. The passage is a sanctuary to dugongs, dolphins and turtles with the skies above the marine park home to over 350 species of birds. Shorebirds can been seen almost anywhere in Pumicestone Passage, usually wherever there is exposed mud and sand. The Moreton Bay Council website has a great range of specific locations available for viewing the vast number of species. The bird habitats for the area include Torrbul, Buckley’s Hole Conservation Park, Kakadu Beach and Caloundra.
An abundance of natural destinations and water-based activities are available to enjoy in Pumicestone Passage. If you are heading upstream then a kayaking guidebook to the area is helpful in getting a lay of the area and to assist in finding those quaint spots to escape from it all. If you are looking for a bit more action then maybe fishing is your sport, be sure to get a good map of the region before heading out for a fishing trip.
