Straddie’s Natural Wonders

By Linda Tancs

Starting around May and ending in July, thousands of humpback whales migrate north past Australia’s North Stradbroke Island (popularly known as “Straddie”), a favored destination for Brisbanites just off the coast. You’ll find the best land-based viewing at Point Lookout. Forget your watch; here you’re on nature’s time. Besides whale watching season, there’s plenty of hiking, fishing, swimming (five beaches to choose from) and surfing to keep you occupied. Or just relax at one of the peaceful inland lakes with names like Blue Lake and Brown Lake. It’s that simple.
