Welcome to North Stradbroke Island

North Stradbroke Island

Just one hour from Brisbane CBD is the region of Moreton Bay, home to many islands, the largest and most spectacular of which is North Stradbroke.

Access to “Straddie” is made seamless with regular water taxi and vehicular barges ferrying passengers between the mainland township of Cleveland and the Island community of Dunwich.

Once on the Island both a bus and taxi service transport passengers to the Stradbroke Island Hotel, located 20 kms across the Island from Dunwich, in the surfside township of Point Lookout.

Point Lookout

The most easterly point on the Queensland Coast is a scenic gem that sits on the northerly tip of North Stradbroke Island embracing the sparkling waters of the Coral Sea.

Noted and named by Captain Cook in his historic 1770 coastal cruise, the Point features spectacular views, magnificent gorges, pristine beaches and a surging surf teeming with ocean wildlife – dolphins, manta-rays, turtles and dugong abound.

Land-based whale-watching becomes a delightful pastime in the winter/spring months, while an abundant variety of fish provides year-round recreation for anglers. Hundreds of bird species adorn the inland water-ways, while you can graze with the wallabies on the sand dunes at sunrise. Spot a koala, dine with the ugeree birds, laze with a lace-monitor!

World-class beach breaks make the Point a mecca for serious surfers. The Point Peninsula, with its 270 degrees of beachfront, will conjure up a wave whatever the weather. It is indeed an ill-wind that doesn’t blow-up a sweet swell somewhere at Point Lookout.

The immaculate snow-white beaches are legendary. The mighty Main Beach challenges the best board-riders, while the quieter waters of the north-facing Cylinder is an ideal play-pool for families. Fish on Flinders, take a leisurely stroll on Home, get it all off on Frenchman’s! All year round there’s a beach to match your mood on North Stradbroke the island idyll where summer never ends.
