Gorgeous Day

Walk the world famous Gorge Walk

Make your way to Point Lookout and meander along the boardwalk that takes you around the naturally beautiful landscape of the North Gorge. Spot Kangaroos lazing in the sun, eagles in the trees and dolphins, manta rays and turtles in the sparkling ocean.

Brown Lake Wading

Cycle, Scooter or Shuttle to a lake

Take your bike, hire a scooter, or book a shuttle to one of the lakes. Brown Lake (Bummeria) is easily accessible off Alfred Way, otherwise Blue Lake (Kaboora) is a little further along and is about 5km round trip on foot, so pack water and sunscreen.

Have a picnic

Picnic on the foreshore of Dunwich, at one of the lakes, or one the headlands at Point Lookout. The island has places you can purchase delicious treats and drinks for while you relax with family and friends or even a good book or podcast!

Cylinder Pe

Surf, body board or swim

Did you know Cylinder Beach was voted best Queensland beach for the last 2 years by Surf Life Saving Queensland? There are many beautiful beaches on Straddie but make sure to swim between the flags.

Whale Hello There

Watch the whales go by

It's not too late to see the mighty Humpback Whales as the annual migration comes to a close. Straddie has the best land based whale watching in Queensland, or even the world (in our opinion).

Treat yourself to a gelati while kangaroo and dolphin spotting on the headland from the Oceanic Gelati Shop or a bite to eat or a cold drink from any of the restaurants, cafes or clubs on the Island. There are options in all three townships.
