Explore the townships and surrounding activities
The permanent population on North Stradbroke Island is around 2000 people, residing in three townships on the island;
- Dunwich is the largest and has most of the island’s services including shops, a school, medical centre, local museum and university marine research station.
- Amity Point is a small seaside village with a general store, a cafe and is a popular fishing spot on the island.
- Point Lookout (referred to locally as ‘the point’) is on the surf side of the island and is the major tourist destination in the holiday season. Discover Stradbroke manages over 60 quality holiday apartments and houses at Point Lookout.
You’ll arrive at Dunwich on the Island’s western side, and from there travel on sealed roads to Point Lookout, Queensland’s most easterly point and a thriving township replete with shops, restaurants and cafes, amenities, accommodation and the most breathtaking scenery.
The North Gorge Headland at Point Lookout is recognised as one of the best whale-watching spots in Australia. Point Lookout is the gateway to Main Beach – 32kms of uninterrupted white sandy beach with crystal clear waters, fantastic surf breaks, and the most ‘Queensland’ of paradise experiences you can imagine.
You may choose to explore the area’s many scenic bushwalks and bike trails, or enjoy the experience of four-wheel driving along the beach.
