A gondola ride can be a splurge but it could also be one of the greatest experiences you can share with someone special. Off the northern coastlines of Moreton Bay in Bribie Island, there is an amazing gondola cruise you can book if you want to treat a loved one to an unforgettable experience.
The Bribie Island Gondola Cruise by the Harbour Promenade in Banksia Beach has been in business since 2014. Managed by the husband and wife team of Quinn and Melanie, the gondola ride is a must-do if you want to get a closer look at the breathtaking panorama of Bribie Island.
The cruise will take you to the Moreton Bay Marine Park by the Pumicestone Passage, the Pacific Harbour canals and the nearby Glasshouse Mountains. As you marvel at the natural beauty all around, you’ll be treated to a glass of wine with a generous helping of cheese, fresh strawberries or chocolates.
Like the famous gondola rides of Venice, Italy, the Bribie Island Gondola Cruise is the consummate gift for couples celebrating their milestones, or planning a proposal, or just simply looking for some cuddle time. Whether you take the gondola ride in morning, lunch or evening, the short trip can be the most inimitable romantic gesture for anyone looking to take someone’s breath away.
But the cruise is also ideal for groups looking for something different for a friend’s birthday or hen’s party. Whilst gondola rides are popular with couples, Quinn and Melanie have also taken squads of ladies, families with kids, or a mixed group of friends who want to enjoy a lunch or dinner cruise with the best ambience.
The Bribie Island Gondola Cruise is by reservation only but the rides can take place seven days a week, weather permitting. The gondola can accommodate up to six people.
