Yura! Welcome to North Stradbroke Island, affectionately known as Straddie, or Minjerribah as it is traditionally known. The traditional custodians of this land, the Nunukul, Nughi and Goenpul clans of the Quandamooka people welcome you to Minjerribah. Their relationship with our Island dates back thousands of years, and their connection to this land, sea and country is still as strong today.
Straddie Is a sub-tropical island, is located 30 km southeast of Brisbane, Queensland and it is the world’s second largest sand island: about 38 km long and 11 km wide!
From endless summer adventures to awesome “whale-watching “winters, Straddie Is the perfect spot for a holiday, short break or day trip.
From cultural and historical experiences to bayside dreaming in Dunwich (Goompi); from great fishing and dolphin encounters to sensational Straddie sunsets at Amity Point (Pulan); from amazing bush walks to visiting stunning fresh-water lakes in our National Parks, and from beautiful gorges, beaches and up-close wild-life experiences to uncrowded surf at Point Lookout (Mooloomba); Straddie offers a diversity to satisfy a variety of tastes. Your only problem will be choosing where to go and what to do …. Oh that… and wishing you never had to leave!
Our island vibe is chilled, slow-paced and welcoming: Straddie Is in fact, the perfect antidote to city life. Our island’s unique, timeless beauty is appreciated by all who live here and all who visit our shores.
Please come to Straddie, enjoy and respect our beautiful island home and its natural environment. And, although Straddie may leave its imprint on your heart forever, please take nothing but photographs, leave nothing but footprints and kill nothing but time…
