A taste of Straddie

North Stradbroke Island or Straddie as it’s affectionately known, is a spectacular place. Close to Brisbane, the island has the magical ability of making you feel far away as soon as the boat chugs away from the shore.

Winter or Summer the island is stunning. With wild coastline, beaches that can only be accessed by 4wd, and inland lakes surrounded by a forest of paper bark trees, it’s easy to understand why it’s a popular break for those needing a pause from the city.

Straddie also boasts a killer surf break, incredible diving spots and one of the best look outs to watch the annual whale migration. We were fortunate enough to spot some spouting mammals swimming North.

This visit was about introducing Andres to the charms of the place while celebrating his 30th birthday. So we savoured the decadent seafood on offer and took the wet Winter weather as a sign to stay indoors and watch nature unfold over a glass of bubbles.


Happy birthday to the person who makes me laugh the hardest.
