North Stradbroke Island/Minjerribah is a wonderful place to visit anytime. But it’s especially appealing during whale watching season, between June and November.
That’s because Point Lookout is the most easterly point in Queensland, making it the ultimate land-based whale watching location.
Elisha Kissick is a local tourism operator who runs Yura Tours. She offers a range of experiences for guests that focus on the island’s natural wonders and its ancient Quandamooka stories. During whale season, Elisha offers a Whale Watching Cultural Walk. It follows newly created paths along the headland, peppered with lookouts perfect for spotting.
Delvene Cockatoo-Collins is another island local who draws inspiration from her Quandamooka heritage. She welcomes visitors to her art studio Dunwich, and invites them to pick up a gift or two. Delvene’s technique and inspiration was passed down from her ancestors and she uses traditional Quandamooka techniques in the art she creates. Delvene is best known for designing the artwork featured on the 2018 Commonwealth Games medals.
If you’re thinking of visiting Minjerribah, why not stay a little longer? You can choose from camping and glamping to hotel rooms, apartments, resorts and luxury holiday homes. Head online to find out more – or contact the Redlands Coast Visitor Information Centre.
