This gorgeous village on North Stradbroke Island has one of the best views in the world. You will be mesmerised with the impressive natural environment, including 30 kilometres of surf beach and towering rocky headlands. The impressive North Gorge walk at Point Lookout is the best land-based vantage point in Australia to watch dolphins, turtles, manta rays and migrating humpback whales (June to November).

Relax on one of the patrolled beaches, explore some of the best dive sites or surf some of the best breaks in the world. Once you have had enough of surf, sun and sand, browse the boutique stores, book in for some pampering at a day spa or dine out overlooking the Pacific Ocean. There's a wide range of accommodation at the Point - from beachside camping, backpacker's guesthouse and Bed and Breakfasts to luxury units and stunning holiday homes, many with private whale-watching towers.

Other Information

How To Get There:
Point Lookout on North Stradbroke Island can be accessed via passenger and vehicular ferry departing from Cleveland, 35 minutes from Brisbane.

Must See and Do:
North Gorge Walk is a 1.5 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. An absolute must do!

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.

Ride a scooter: A fun way to explore Point Lookout. No experience necessary.

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