Japanese Tourist try to "drive" to Australias' North Stradbroke Island
Tourists try to 'drive' to island

Three Japanese tourists found themselves in an embarrassing situation after their GPS led them to drive right into the muddy waters of Moreton Bay.

The trio were trying to get to North Stradbroke Island in Queensland yesterday when they took the wrong turn.

They travelled about 500m through mangrove mud, apparently unaware of the 15km of water separating them from their destination.

Yuzu Noda, 21, said their GPS guide "told us we could drive down there".

LOL,

I lived about a stones throw from there for 2 years. In Manly.

Back then, the only thing Stradbroke was known for was pot plantations and grouper fishing.

Isn't Stradbroke Island off QLD? Manly is a beach suburb of Sydney. It's a bit more than a stone's throw.

The GPS's they used to lead them to Pearl Harbor were far more effective.

They should have bought tickets on the Inter-Island train.
