The Minjerribah Recreation Area casts a net over all of Stradbroke Island’s best bits, including all the beaches that allow 4WDing, its camping areas and holiday parks.

Straddie has long been a favourite getaway destination for stressed out Brisbanites, and is within striking distance of all southeast Queensland residents.

The Minjerribah Recreation Area covers camping and beach access as Flinders Beach, Main Beach, Adams Beach, Bradbury Beach, Amity Point, Adder Rock, Thankful Rest and Cylinder Beach.

As well as top notch campgrounds and a couple of beaut beach runs, Straddie is home to some of the Sunny State’s best fishing and surfing opportunities. There’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained out here and the relaxed pace offers a guaranteed chance to recharge the batteries.


4WDING: There is a network of bush tracks around the southern section of the island and driving is permitted on Flinders Beach and Main Beach.

Beach Access Permits are required to drive on the sand within the recreation area which can be purchased online at www.straddiecamping.com.au or by calling the reservations office on (07) 3409 9668.

FISHING: During the warmer months, summer whiting, dart and jewfish are regularly taken from both Main and Flinders beaches. The fresher the bait the better your chances, so spend the extra time to collect your own bait if possible.


LOCATION: North Stradbroke Island is accessible from Cleveland on the mainland by vehicle ferry. Cleveland is an easy drive from either Brisbane or the Gold Coast.

CAMPING: Beachside camping is available at Flinders Beach camping area and Main Beach camping area. Unpowered sites are available for $16 per night during the low season and $21.70 per night during the peak season. Both campgrounds offer basic facilities including picnic tables and non-flushing toilets.

FUEL is available at Brisbane.
