Police tell riders to wait till dawn
Two men who were stranded on Little Wobby Beach near Patonga spent a cold night waiting to be collected at first light on June 13.
Brisbane Water Police said the pair, aged 26 and 33, caught a ferry or water taxi to the beach to go mountain bike riding but failed to return come nightfall.
The pair contacted police who advised that it was too dangerous to traverse bushland in the dark.
The two men were forced to wait out the night, lighting a fire to keep warm, before a vessel was sent to collect them once the dawn broke.
Brisbane Water Police stayed in contact with the men throughout the night.
