Stradbroke Island Accommodation

Stradbroke Island or ‘Straddie’ is a beautiful sand island that sits just off the coast between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. It is popular among locals from both cities as a stunning, yet rural island escape. The island is spacious enough to absorb an influx of both domestic and international guests and maintain a sincerely pristine and untouched atmosphere. 

The world’s second largest sand island has many beaches to enjoy, with your choice of calm waters or tumbling surf beaches. Stradbroke Island also has a selection of inland lakes peppered across its breadth some of which are accessible by car, others require a short walk to enjoy their wares. There are also a host of walking tracks for the more adventurous to explore and enjoy the native flora and fauna. 

Stradbroke Island accommodation ranges from camping sites to luxurious holiday houses and apartments, it’s best to speak to holiday experts when deciding which option is best due to the diversity offered. 

A very popular activity on the island is 4 wheel driving. Churning up the sand is a favoured past time of both 4WD owners and those just wanting to have some fun, and hence they are available to rent from the mainland and also on Stradbroke Island itself. 

There is a surprising variety of restaurants available on the island, some of which are incorporated into the Stradbroke Island accommodation, as well as plenty of beach front cafés, bakeries, clubs, bars, and alfresco dining options. Discover Queensland recommend enjoying a mixture of dining experiences, sometimes grabbing a pizza to share on the beach while the sun sets is the perfect meal. 

A gem of Moreton Bay, Stradbroke is a natural wonder, to truly enjoy the island to its fullest, speak to the experts at Discover Queensland on 1300 788 553.
