  • A small, friendly, well-maintained volunteer-run museum with lots of local history. Our second visit.  more »
  • Today we are going to talk about North Stradbroke Island or as the Australians know it popularly, Straddie Island, the second largest sand island in the world and, we believe a great unknown to many of the intrepid that we have ever travelled to Australia. We were in March. Located in Moreton Bay and next to the island of the same name, which once formed a large island that a huge storm was in charge of leaving in two. It has three small urban nuclei (Dunwich, Amity Point and Point Lockout). The first big news is that you can get perfectly by public transport DSD downtown Brisbane (train + ferry) in about two hours approx, its accessibility is one of the strengths. The island has buses that connect the 3 villages. We stayed in Dunwich, in a private house via Airbnb, although TB has some hotels in Point lockout. The island has two freshwater lakes the Brown lake (it has brown water due to the eucalyptus leaves that fall into the water) and the Blue Lake. They're both fit for the bathroom. It also has several beaches. We were in Cyllinder beach and in Frenchman's Beach, two spectacular beaches, but eye! They are very open beaches where the swell hits quite strong, especially in Frenchman's beach, although you can bathe without problems. The island has enough animal life, it is easy to cross with a kangaroo by the road, impresses! There are also dingos and koalas, although from the latter we saw none. Being the end of the austral summer there were not nearly people on the island and both the huge beaches and lakes were practically without people. It was a tremendous day surrounded by nature and wild beaches. We can only recommend that if you are ever in Brisbane you drop a few days on this island, which may not have the popularity of Fraser Island, but is much more accessible and, above all more economical without relinquishing the authenticity of Australian nature and P Otente South Pacific Ocean.

  • Love this place fantastic for relaxing and enjoying free time. Find everyone very friendly. Beaches are great too. Been going there for years and will continue to do so 🏊‍♀️🏄‍♂️🏄‍♀️
  • We were introduced to this great little museum by friendly staff. They even had craft activities to keep the kids amused while I absorbed the history. Well worth a visit, to understand more about the Island.
