Creative Straddie

Some very creative people live on North Stradbroke Island – and they’re perfectly placed to draw artistic inspiration from their natural surroundings.

Husband and wife photographers, Angie Simms and Stuart Quinn have combined their passion for locally grown produce with wonderful images to create the cookbook “Eat, Drink and be Straddie”.

Visual artist, Jess Scott designs patterns inspired by nature at her Starfish Studio. She then transforms them into bright and beautiful homewares plus fabrics that are available by the metre.

Matt and Bobbi Wells present creative modern Australian cuisine to guests at their Whales Way Restaurant and Bar.

Why not stay in the heart of the island’s creative hub? Pandanus Palms Holiday Resort offers two and three bedroom villas at Point Lookout. The villas are fully self-contained and well-equipped for short breaks or longer holidays.

Getting to North Stradbroke Island is easy with Stradbroke Ferries. The service offers multiple daily vehicle and passenger transfers.
