There is only one way to get to this island and that is by water. You can fly to the Brisbane airport and take any of the ferries that are heading to the island. The trip is a mere 75 minutes and during that time you can just take in the amazing peacefulness that is only available on the open water. You can take a ferry from a few different wharfs, including the CBD and Holt Street. You can also take a cruise to the island, which typically only last for a single day and then return in the evening. You can also take one of the faster boats, which leave from the Holt Street Wharf at four different times.
