STRADBROKE Island, or Straddie as the locals call it, lies right on Brisbane’s doorstep.
Its close proximity to the state capital – about an hour by car – makes it an ideal getaway for both four-wheel drive enthusiasts and fishermen. With its kilometres of unspoilt beaches you can drive, camp, fish or surf on, plenty of off-road tracks traversing its bushland, and a host of adventure activities to enjoy, it’s no wonder Straddie is a favourite for Queenslanders and interstate visitors.
Stradbroke, Fraser and Moreton Islands, all located in the south-east, are the biggest sand islands in the world, with beaches stretching for days.
MSA 4x4 Accessories tagged along for the ride and brought its four-way adjustable driving mirror, which we take a closer look at in the video.
During our few days on Straddie we experienced stunning sunrises and sunsets at our beachfront bush camp, saw whales and dolphins frolicking in the azure waters, and explored the many locations and attractions the island has to offer.
Whether you have time to stay for a weekend, a month or longer, be sure to experience Stradbroke Island on your next adventure to the east coast.
