It offers a wide range of experiences including the best land-based whale-watching in Australia. Right on Brisbane's doorstep, "Straddie" is perfect for day trips, short stays or week-long getaways.

There are kilometres of golden beaches, freshwater lakes and ocean waters teeming with marine life including dolphins, manta rays, turtles and humpback whales. For those who like a bit of adventure and fun there are 4WD tours, sandboarding, surfing lessons, diving, snorkelling, golf and a vast spectrum of aquatic activities. For others who want a more relaxing day out, the "Straddie" offers bowls, bird-watching, picnic spots, scenic walks and perfect beach fishing, as well as secluded hideaways in the calm waters of Moreton Bay.

North Stradbroke Island has an extensive range of holiday accommodation including architecturally designed holiday houses with their own whale-watching towers, beach-front and foreshore camping, family holiday resorts with self-contained accommodation as well as a backpacker hostel.
