Are you based in south-east Queensland and craving an island holiday, but aren’t keen to travel too far? Beautiful North Stradbroke Island could be the answer.
Stradbroke Ferries depart Cleveland, east of Brisbane, throughout the day, every day – delivering you and your vehicle to the island in under an hour.
Once your toes are in the sand, you may want to enlist the help of “Barefoot Dave” Thelander to show you around. “Barefoot Dave” is the shoeless CEO of Straddie Kingfisher Tours – and he offers all sorts of island excursions, including a 4WD fishing adventure.
Book your ferry travel and an outing with Straddie Kingfisher Tours via Stradbroke Holidays. The team there can also sort out your island accommodation.
Options include the secluded Allure Stradbroke Resort in Point Lookout – deluxe bungalows and villas surrounded by natural bushland, just 50 metres from one of the best surf beaches on Straddie.
It’s also just a few steps from the resort to Chillers Pantry Café – a little slice of French delight, offering freshly brewed coffee and daily baked pastries, quiches, breads, croissants and classic Croque Monsieur.
