About the region

The traditional custodians of this land, the Nunukul, Nughi and Goenpul clans of the Quandamooka people welcome you to Minjerribah. Their relationship with our Island dates back thousands of years, and their connection to this land, sea and country is still as strong today.

Straddie is a sub-tropical island, is located 30 km southeast of Brisbane, Queensland and it is the world’s second largest sand island: about 38 km long and 11 km wide!

From endless summer adventures to awesome “whale-watching “winters, Straddie is the perfect spot for a holiday, short break or day trip.
