South Stradbroke Island

Step aside Gilligan. Should you ever find yourself stranded on South Stradbroke Island or 'South Straddie' as the locals like to call her, then you can count your lucky stars. For you are visiting a Gold Coast destination as pretty as Ginger and as down-to-earth as Mary Ann.

Not that you are too far away from civilisation on this sand island near Southport which is only 200 metres from the northern end of the Spit. This makes it a great day trip for those who travel by private boat, charter boat, ferry or water taxi from several departure points along the Gold Coast.

There's three council campsites on the island, as well as a café, for those who wish to extend their stay. And who wouldn't? South Straddie offers superb surfing, swimming and bushwalking. There's loads of native wildlife among this 1,800-hectare conservation park which is ideal for hiking, rock climbing and ocean fishing. Becoming stranded never looked so good.
