Then, land on a remote beach on South Stradbroke Island where your pilot sets up a table, chairs, umbrella, and picnic rug for your comfort before bidding you farewell. For lunch, you are presented with a glorious fresh seafood platter including Moreton Bay, prawns, oysters, and all the trimmings including champagne, premium beer or wine, soft drinks, cold meats, dips, fresh fruit, and chocolates.
