As part of its fundraising efforts to build the Research Fund, FIDO is offering a series of Cruises in the Strait to enable people to have a personal experience of Great Sandy Strait. By joining one of the cruises on offer when the trans-equatorial shorebirds are in residence, passengers are helping the research into the water quality of this area that is also now being considered for inclusion on the World Heritage List.
Cruises on the MV Amaroo start at 9.30 am and conclude at 3.00 pm at the Hervey Bay Boat Club wharf. Each cruise will have expert guides aboard providing a running commentary on the history and outstanding natural values of this heritage and biologically diverse waterway. Numbers for each cruise are strictly limited.
Cost: $100 which includes morning tea, a sandwich lunch and a contribution to the Research Fund. Organizer of this trip is the Fraser Island Defenders Organisation that ran its first safari on Great Sandy Strait in the 1970s.
Cruise Dates: Sunday 11 March and Tuesday 20 March 2018.
