Have a whale of a time visiting Straddie
North Stradbroke Island, or Minjerribah to the traditional owners, lies within Moreton Bay, 30 kilometres southeast of Brisbane City.
Straddie, as the island is affectionately known, is every beachcomber's delight in summer with its golden sands and breaking waves. Swimming attire of all colours, beach balls and surfboards populate the coastline as locals and tourists alike celebrate the sunshine and surf.
Winter on North Stradbroke Island is just as beautiful even though many of us are reluctant to get our feet wet. The beaches are still long, the ocean remains every bit as blue, and the scenery is just as spectacular. Plus there are whales. Yes, whales. During the winter months, you may spot a while either heading north to warmer waters to have their calves, after which they return south with their offspring. Indeed, the Island is the closest place to Brisbane where you can enjoy land-based whale watching. Just grab a pair of binoculars and look out to sea. Whales can be seen anytime between late May and early November.
