I would like to share some photos from our walk along the beautiful North Gorge at Point look out on Stradbroke island in Queensland Australia.

The North Gorge walk is 1km long and takes about 30 Min. It starts off as a dirt track then turns into a wooden board walk.

The walk has breath taking views of the ocean. And during whale season it is great spots to be on the look out for whales between June and November. You might also spot a pod of dolphins.

My favourite time for this walk is at sunrise.

As the local kangaroos will be feeding and watching the sunrise aswell.

Early morning or late afternoon you are sure to see the local kangaroos on the walk eating grass and chilling.

It's amazing how much wild life you come across on this walk so keep the walk going down to the Gorge.

Now the Gorge itself is a beautiful sight.

As you follow the board walk you will come to the other side of the Gorge, which has a blow hole from the ocean in between the rocks.

Also keep an eye out here for sea hawks as they perch in trees along the Cliffs.

As we left the Gorge walk there was some more kangaroos there to say good bye.
