If bussing around the island, an all day ticket is the way to go, very inexpensive, and you can hop on and off all day. Surfing lessons at Cyclinder were enjoyed by the kids as was sand surfing. 4WD eco trip was a bit disappointing. Walk around the headland from shops to Main beach was spectacular. Food at bowling club was good value for money. Wednesday pizza and pasta was good value.
Get up close to Stradbroke Island's colourful marine life.
The island is about 38 km long and 11 km wide. North Stradbroke Island is the second largest sand island in the world
