South Stradbroke Island Camping

South Stradbroke Island, Gold Coast Area

Indicative Rate * AU$26 to AU$200

Escape the fast pace of everyday life and totally relax amongst natural, unspoilt beauty. Day trippers and campers are both welcome with suitable facilities to entertain.

A superb natural reserve, South Stradbroke Island offers calm inner waterways on one side, virtually untouched native bushland in the centre, and on the other side, 22 kilometres of pristine surf beach with hardly a soul in sight. The surf beach offers spectacular views of the beautiful Gold Coast, and you can catch glimpses of the majestic humpback whales migrating north to breed during whale watching season, which starts in June and runs through to late October. Please note as the campgrounds are located in a Conservation Park, dogs are not permitted on the island.

The three camping grounds on South Stradbroke Island include Tipplers at the northern end of the island, North Currigee and Currigee at the southern end. It is essential to book your camping site before you get to the island.

At Tipplers Licensed Cafe, enjoy hearty meals and refreshments, or visit the Kiosk.

There are several ways to get to South Stradbroke Island including boat hire or charter, water taxi or your own private boat.
