For us locals, Stradbroke Island is by far the most popular Island off Brisbane but has yet to be discovered by visiting tourists. The second largest sand island in the world it is 32 km long and has everything to provide the visitor with a unique and memorable experience of Brisbane and Australia. So what makes Stradbroke so special? It is so close to Brisbane (only 50 minutes by ferry) yet it has some of Australia’s best beaches, a spectacular rocky headland, unique natural features, and is a genuine wilderness destination. There is still a strong aboriginal presence on the Island with the traditional owners, the Quandamooka people, actively involved in the Island’s management. Finally the waters are home to large schools of dolphin, manta rays, and turtles – all of which can be seen from the Headland. A bonus is that in Winter, Point Lookout is considered to be Australia’s best land-based vantage point for spotting the migrating Humpback Whale.Your guided eco tour to Stradbroke Island includes:• Return bus and ferry transfers to Stradbroke Island.
