Cylinder Beach, North Stradbroke Island

North Stradbroke Island,

Free Entry

Cylinder Beach is the most popular swimming beach on North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah). It has been voted Queensland’s best beach by Surf Life Saving Queensland not once, but twice – in 2018 and again in 2019.

This picturesque cove between Cylinder and Home Beach headlands at Point Lookout, North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) is popular with families because it offers generally very safe swimming conditions and camp sites nestling in the dunes and just metres from the water’s edge. It is patrolled during the summer and holiday periods.

Cylinder Beach is backed by a shady foreshore reserve, which includes a picnic and camping area, parking spaces and other amenities.

The beach as well as offering camp sites, is close to other accommodation options, beaches, hotel and quality eating establishments and within easy walking distance of the stunning North Gorge Walk and the best land-based whale-watching points on Australia’s eastern seaboard.
