The history of Stradbroke island was that there was just one beautiful island until 1896, when a storm came and split the island into two, North Stradbroke and South Stradbroke.
North Stradbroke is a beautiful sand island with unspoilt beaches and beautiful scenery. Its three small centres are Amity Point, Point Lookout and Dunwich and they are connected by sealed roads. The south of the island is closed to visitors as it is the scene of heavy sand mining.
You can go there by vehicular ferry, which takes around an hour, or water taxi which takes 25 minutes.
At Amity, there are a few accommodation options for a beautiful holiday.
Places where split log exteriors are treated pine and were handpicked and milled at the same time, giving them a uniform appearance.
You can stay at bungalows where they have a leadlight porthole window depicting Australian native animals. They are suitable for families or couples and each has a bathroom, refrigerator, stove, microwave, two televisions and video. The bungalows have thatched bamboo lining, colonial style furnishings and Lorikeet Lodge is totally wheelchair-friendly.
Most accommodation options have swimming pools which are quite spectacular. One has a waterfall dropping from the top of a cave, inside of which is a spa. There are three pebble beaches around the pool, two with gazebos.
Guests can fish from the jetty, snorkel along the rock wall and there is a little thatched cubbyhouse for children to amuse themselves.
Even the guest laundry is in a little log hut with thatched roof, and there are gas barbecues outside the bungalows.
