AMAZING STRADBROKE ISLAND
There are three small settlements on the island. Dunwich is the gateway to the island for people arriving on the vehicular barge or water taxi and an interesting place to explore. It is home to the island’s historical museum, many historical sites, waterfront cemetery and has important associations with both Aboriginal and European history. Pt Lookout is paradise for surfers with its rolling breakers at Main and Cylinder beaches and the location of most of the island’s holiday homes and rental accommodation. Although there are many licensed clubs and restaurants on the island, the only “pub” is at Pt Lookout overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Amity Point, the third and smallest settlement has a simple laid back charm of its own.
