South Stradbroke Island

South Stradbroke Island accommodation: Istania

The majority of South Stradbroke Island is undeveloped which makes it the ideal choice for anyone looking for a peaceful getaway in stunning surroundings, with plenty of options for enjoying the natural beauty of the area whether through bushwalks or by water. With over 20 kilometres of beaches, plus rainforest, wetlands and mangroves too it really is a paradise for nature-lovers and anyone else who wants a break from fast city life.

Most visitors use the ferry service which runs several times a day between South Stradbroke Island and Runaway Bay Marina over on the mainland. It’s also possible to take a water taxi (or, of course, your own boat) to some of the island’s private jetties.
