North Stradbroke Island

Family eat ice cream at The Gorge

Straddie (to the locals) is known for some of the most spectacular scenery found anywhere in Australia. An ideal holiday destination for families, groups of friends and day trippers, the island is famous for its scenic headlands, rolling surf and endless white sandy beaches. Three little townships on the island provide a relaxed village atmosphere with a variety of cafes and restaurants often filled with locals, surfers and sun-baked tourists. Go whale watching from Point Lookout, the best land-based whale-watching site in the world, experience some of the best views on the island from The Gorge Walk or take a dip in one of the island’s freshwater lakes.
