About South Stradbroke Island

Perched just off Sanctuary Cove, South Stradbroke Island lures nature enthusiasts with its sandy beaches, rolling surf and scenic bushwalking trails. The island is known by locals as "South Straddie" and is wonderfully undeveloped with 22 kilometres of pristine shoreline and an interior brimming with native bushland and swamp wallabies.

Things to do

One of the best ways to enjoy South Stradbroke Island is by kayak. You'll get a chance to paddle across the Broadwater channel, snorkel with tropical fish and spot dolphins, turtles and stingrays. Visit between May and November to spot migrating whales cruising along the coast.

Fancy a night under the stars? South Stradbroke Island is home to three well-equipped campsites featuring picnic tables and barbecues. At the northern tip of the island you'll find one of the Gold Coast's best fishing spots, so bring a rod and catch your own dinner.

From its sandy beaches to its silvery bushland, there are plenty of opportunities to spot native wildlife on South Stradbroke. The island is home to hundreds of golden swamp wallabies, as well as water birds that like to nest in its melaleuca wetlands.

For the ultimate South Stradbroke Island experience, why not splurge on a seaplane tour? After a spectacular scenic flight over the Gold Coast, you'll touch down and spend the day exploring the bays, beaches and coves.

Getting around

South Stradbroke Island is just 200 metres from the northern tip of Sanctuary Cove, with water taxis, ferries and charter boats cruising to the island. There are no cars on the island, so you'll need to get around on foot.
