North Stradbroke Island hotels
North Stradbroke Island, Australia
Popular with Brisbanites who want to escape the rigors of everyday life, Straddie, as it is known to locals is a gem of an island protecting Moreton Bay that is home to many different luxurious North Stradbroke Island hotels. Located 30 kilometres southeast of Brisbane, North Stradbroke was part of a larger sand island known as Stradbroke until a violent storm hit the area in 1896 to break the island into two and form the Jumpinpin Channel. As the second-largest sand island in the world, Straddie is full of lakes and beaches along most of the seaward coastline with rocky outcrops at Point Lookout.
Take advantage of member benefits to make your stay even more enjoyable, at any North Stradbroke accommodation scattered among the island’s three small towns. Enjoy swimming, surfing and other water sports at Straddie’s scenic beaches that include Main Beach, Cylinder Beach, Home Beach, Frenchman’s/Deadman’s Beach and Flinders Beach. Inland freshwater lakes, particularly Blue Lake, and wetlands contain mangrove and paperbark communities and surface-water fauna. They are also home to several endangered species. Other wetlands attracting visitors include Brown Lake, Eighteen Mile Swamp and Myora Springs and Swamp.
With its relaxed atmosphere, the island is also home to a number of unpretentious restaurants and cafes near many hotels in North Stradbroke Island. The sleepy fishing village of Amity provides local character while art buffs can browse the galleries in Dunwich. Visitors can reach North Stradbroke Island in less than two hours from Brisbane. Driving to Cleveland, where you can take a ferry, takes about 50 minutes. Passenger ferries cross the channel in 25 minutes, while vehicle ferries take slightly longer.
