Getting around Straddie
We’ve made it easy for you! Sealed roads connect the 3 townships of Dunwich, Amity and Point Lookout… and there’s not a traffic light in sight!
If you didn’t bring the car, the local Straddie bus service will get you from A to B. Or you can hire a rental car or perhaps pedal power is your passion? The distance between Dunwich (where the water taxis and car ferries arrive) and Point Lookout is approximately 22km so if you do cycle, you can travel and enjoy both the beauty and the adventure of Straddie at the pace you choose. Just take care as the roads have narrow or no shoulder in parts and are sometimes frequented by large trucks in business hours. There is also a taxi service for that personalised trip.
The bus service meets the water taxi services (some late and early services are not met) and transports passengers through Dunwich, to Myora, Amity Point or Point Lookout. See Stradbroke Island Buses for more info.
The cab service is available to transport passengers around the Island, contact directly to book: Stradbroke Cab Service.
It is approximately 22km to cycle from where to boat lands in Dunwich, to Amity Point, Point Lookout or to the Causeway Access to Main Beach. The roads have narrow or no shoulder in parts and are frequented by large trucks in business hours, please take care.
4WD, off-road and beach driving
Vehicle Access Permits are required for driving in designated beach and bush areas on the Island. These permits are available from Straddie Camping.
Driving on the beach is limited to 4WD vehicles and is only allowed on Flinders Beach and Main Beach at designated access points. Driving is not permitted on our beaches 1 hour 15 minutes either side of high tide time. This is both for your safety, and for environmental reasons.
