North Stradbroke Island - traditionally known as Minjerribah - is the second largest sand island in the world. It offers a wide range of experiences including the best land-based whale-watching in Australia. Right on Brisbane's doorstep, "Straddie" is perfect for day trips, short stays or week-long getaways.

There are kilometres of golden beaches, freshwater lakes and ocean waters teeming with marine life including dolphins, manta rays, turtles and humpback whales. For those who like a bit of adventure and fun there are 4WD tours, sandboarding, surfing lessons, diving, snorkelling, golf and a vast spectrum of aquatic activities. For others who want a more relaxing day out, the "Straddie" offers bowls, bird-watching, picnic spots, scenic walks and perfect beach fishing, as well as secluded hideaways in the calm waters of Moreton Bay.

Other Information

How To Get There:
North Stradbroke Island can be accessed via passenger and vehicular ferry which depart from Cleveland in Redland City, only 35 minutes from Brisbane City.

Must See and Do:
Walk the North Gorge Walk , a 1.2 kilometre boardwalk offering stunning views of pristine sandy beaches and the Blow Hole - a unique rock formation that mimics the humpback whales which pass by each year. The walk is one of the best places on the island to spot the migrating whales between June and November, not to mention dolphins and turtles all year round.

Spot whales: There's no need to leave the land to see the migrating humpback whales - just following the whale trail at Point Lookout.

Eat prawns direct from the trawler: There's no better way to enjoy delicious prawns than at Amity Point.

Enjoy the beach: On foot or in a 4WD, experience the sensation of having a beach to yourself, with 32 kilometres of unspoilt sand to explore at Main Beach.

Go sandboarding: Fly down pristine sand dunes on a guided tour from Point Lookout.
