Three Japanese tourists taking in the sights near Brisbane decided to do a day trip down to North Stradbroke Island using their GPS as a navigational guide.
Unfortunately, their GPS "forgot" to tell them about the 15km of mud, water, and muddy water separate Straddie from the mainland. The three promptly got stuck near Oyster Point, and the rental car was soon surrounded on all sides by Moreton Bay.
"[I]t told us we could drive down there," said 21-year-old Yuzu Noda. "It kept saying it would navigate us to a road. We got stuck . . . there's lots of mud."
And so it begins.
