The most popular Island off the Queensland coast. North Stradbroke should be your number one choice for a day tour from Brisbane. With its fantastic beaches and pristine forests, the Island has an abundance of iconic Australian wildlife like koala and kangaroo plus dolphin and turtles.
North Stradbroke Island is your window into paradise– from the untouched beauty of its beaches and rugged coastline, to the crystal clear waters and abundance of Australian wildlife. Queensland’s most popular island is only a short 45 minute ferry ride across Moreton Bay. You will visit Brown Lake with its pure white beaches and its tea-tree oil infused waters. Time for a healing swim anyone? Then walk the Gorge. This fantastic walk around the rugged North Gorge headland includes some spectacular scenery.
