For visitors to Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) the North Gorge Walk is an absolute must do.
The 1.2 kilometre boardwalk follows the headland of Point Lookout, offering a spectacular outlook from the rocky outcrops to 32 kilometres of white sandy beach – some of the best in Australia.
The boardwalk views over ocean and coastline are simply breathtaking. Take your time and enjoy the walk and its unique experience.
The clear waters make it easy to spot marine life including whales, dolphins and manta rays, a treat in itself. It is the best vantage point on the island – and one of the best on the eastern seaboard - to see the thousands of migrating humpback whales which pass annually between June and November. While you're taking in the incomparable view over the gorge itself, keep your eyes peeled for giant sea turtles riding the waves below.
The Gorge Walk is a North Stradbroke Island icon and reveals just how pristine and unspoiled this magnificent island truly is. Top off your day with a meal at one of the island's quality restaurants and eateries.
