Gannet Beach Adventures

Cape Kidnappers is known for the largest mainland gannet colony in the world! Let Gannet Beach Adventures take you on a 4 hour mild adventure along the rugged coastline from Clifton to Cape Kidnappers in a  tractor and trailer tour along the beach to the world’s largest most accessible mainland Gannet Colony.

During the tour you will: spend time with and get incredibly close to the majestic gannets in their natural habitat; discover how nature has shaped and formed the towering cliffs of the Cape Kidnappers coastline; view ancient earthquake fault lines & fossils, and see gullies formed by wind and water.

A ride with Gannet Beach Adventures can be many things – a nice day beside the sea, an opportunity to view the amazing wildlife, or a trip back in time as told by the layers in the coastal cliffs.

Depending on the time of the season, visitors can witness new-born chicks, through to 4-month old gannets preparing for their first ever flight, which will take them all the way to Australian waters.

The tour season runs from late September/early October through to the end of April and is suitable for all age groups.
