Looking for a great day out in the Redlands for yourself or the entire family? Then why not discover what beautiful Stradbroke Island, or “Straddie” as the locals call it has to offer.

There is so much to do on this island paradise, you could take your fishing rod and wet a line or just enjoy some of Queenslands best seafood at one of the many amazing cafes, takeaways, or restaurants.  But a trip to Straddie wouldn’t be complete without making sure you visit Point Lookout and take on the North Gorge Walk.

North Gorge Walk is a picturesque 1.5km walk and there is “wow” moments at ever turn. You’re likely to spy some sleepy koalas, an abundance of native birds, a frolicking dolphin or two and between June – November, a majestic whale breaching the water surface. The botanists won’t be disappointed either, there is a plethora of native flora to critique and photograph, there is literally something for everyone young and old alike.

Getting to and from Straddie is easy.  Leaving from Toondah Harbour at Cleveland you can catch a water taxi that takes just under 30 minutes and then the local bus service travels to and from Point Lookout.  Alternatively, you can take your own car on the car ferry, this gives you a little more freedom to explore and you’re less restricted to time. Either way, do yourself a favour and get to Straddie – Your Oasis in Redlands.
