I have attended several ecology studies with Dr Tafe Safaris and have always found the staff very professional, courteous and highly organised.  They have provided meals, equipment and excellent teaching assistance for the students.  Safety concerns are always paramount. Thankyou Dennis and Leah for providing consistent high quality service to our students and staff.

Adventure Trip – Fraser Island

We are living in the USA and heard about the beauty of Fraser Island, the biggest sand island in the Southern Hemisphere. We also heard that Dr Tafe is an experienced marine biologist and he is running safaris to Fraser Island and also to North Stradbroke Island closer to Brisbane.  We checked his website at and booked for a 4-day 4WD tour of Fraser Island.  Together we drove up to Tin Can Bay and then took the vehicular ferry across to the southern end of the island.  It was amazing.  We drove along many kilometres of beautiful ocean beach and spent our first night at Central Station in a rain forest area. Then we swam in the crystal clear waters of Lake McKenzie and kayaked in a double kayak with life jackets. We headed north to Eli Creek and then along 30kms of beach to the Maheno Wreck, the Coloured Sands and Indian Head, which is renowned for fishing.  Along the way we saw swarms of Blue Bottles washed up onto the beach and Dr Tafe was able to explain why there were so many at this time.  He had all the first aid gear in case we got stung. We ventured onto Champagne Pools, Blue Lake and the Light House at the northern tip.  This was a real 4-day adventure and because Dr Tafe is an experienced 4WD driver we never became bogged in soft sand. I can recommend the trip, whether you go for 3 or 4 days.

My sister and I accompanied Dr Tafe on one of his “Nature Lover” trips to North Stradbroke Island.  He picked us up in a mini-bus, along with a number of people of all different ages.  After a really scenic trip across in the ferry we drove in the mini-bus to Point Lookout and enjoyed the half hour Gorge Walk.  We were surprised to see some full grown Eastern Grey Kangaroos on the walk plus a young green turtle in the waters of the gorge.  At one point we looked out to sea from one of the vantage points and saw a pod of about 20 Indo Pacific Dolphins riding the waves.  We then drove to Brown Lake, where we had a BBQ lunch and observed a couple of 1.5 m goannas.  After lunch we had fun doing a freshwater study in the natural habitat, using scientific equipment to measure salinity, temperature and Ph of the water. Before heading back to the mainland on the ferry we checked out the mangrove area at Myora Springs and measured salinity once again.   It was an enjoyable day for all of us.
