GPS gone wild: three Japanese students end up in Pacific Ocean!!!

THREE Japanese tourists came unstuck on their planned Australian holiday on Thursday when they abandoned their hire car in Moreton Bay after they tried to "drive" to North Stradbroke Island.

The low tide and a GPS navigation system lured them into the bay at Oyster Point at Cleveland.

A firm gravel surface quickly gave way to the renowned bay mangrove mud and the Hyundai Getz was soon up to its axles, but not before they managed to travel about 500 metres.

Their planned adventure to Straddie ended at 11am and the incoming tide soon forced them to seek help and abandon the vehicle. Full story...
