Stradbroke Accommodation: Catering to Everyone
Located midway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Straddie is a fabulous island destination that boasts incredible natural beauty, stunning white sand beaches, magnificent wildlife and a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. What more could you want? This is one of Queensland's best-kept secrets, and for couples, families or groups of friends, it's an ideal getaway option year-round.
Couples, whether younger or older, will welcome the secluded and serene atmosphere of beautiful Stradbroke Island. We have holiday homes to let at Flinders Beach, Dunwich and Amity, including stunning waterfront options where you can swim and snorkel in your front yard. There's great dining here at Seashells Café and Bar, so you can enjoy a romantic dinner or two. And there are some shops if you are in need of retail therapy. There are also a number of small art galleries on the island, and a museum where you can discover a little of the island's fascinating history.
Enjoy swimming, or reading a favourite book on the lovely beaches along the east coast. Or when you're feeling more active, head to the inland lakes for some great bushwalking, or perhaps try a boat tour around the island. Snorkelling, scuba diving and kayaking can be enjoyed year-round, but are especially recommended in the warmer months. And when you've worn yourself out, try the day spa for some r and r.
Straddie is an ideal option for families, with plenty to keep children amused. There are a variety of Stradbroke accommodation options, so you can find a quality holiday house with plenty of room, that won't break the budget. There is a convenience/grocery store at Amity, and a great seafood outlet, so you can whip up a feast featuring the catch of the day. Or, head out to a café or restaurant for a cheap and cheerful meal.
There are sandy bays along the west coast of the island, or lovely beaches along the east. Be sure to pick one that has lifeguards on duty, and always swim between the flags. Bushwalking, walking and cycling tracks across Straddie offer fabulous scenery, and the chance to see wildlife up close and personal. Don't miss a trip to the jetty at Amity, where a pod of dolphins can frequently be seen frolicking in the afternoons. Also nearby you're sure to encounter the local koalas. It's a great opportunity for children to experience our native animals in the wild.
Coming with the girlfriends or mates? Then you're in for a great time. We have plenty of Straddie accommodation options for you to choose from, with larger holiday houses offering a cost-effective and easy solution for bigger groups. Unpack and set up for days of swimming, surfing, or exploring the beautiful outdoors.
Why not head to Point Lookout to see if you can spot the whales, manta rays and turtles that frequent the coastline. Take the cliff walk and drink in the stunning scenery. You might join a 4WD tour through the inland and along the coast, a cultural tour (learn how to throw that boomerang once and for all), or a boat tour.
Lads, you can even organise a charter to try your hand at ocean game fishing. And if you don't have any luck, there's the backup of Amity's seafood shop. Stock up on the day's catch from the professionals, then fire up the barbie for a fantastic evening meal.
