The Gorge Walk is our jewel in the crown and provides a spectacular viewing platform over the rugged coastline, the North and South Gorges. On this walk you may see kangaroos, dolphins, turtles, whales, eagle rays, sea eagles, curlews and more.
You can also walk the Frenchman’s Beach Headland past Deadman’s Beach and across to Cylinder Beach.
There’s a host of beaches at Minjerribah to swim at, including Main and Cylinder (patrolled 365 days a year), Flinders, Adder, Deadman’s and Frenchman’s. Some would even say the best beaches in Queensland. You can also swim at a netted enclosure at Amity Point.

North Stradbroke Island Museum

What are some of the ancient placenames?
Why are there over 8500 people buried in unmarked graves in the Dunwich (Goompi) cemetery?
Was there ever a dead man on Deadman’s Beach?
What are some of the roads in Amity Point (Pulan) named after?
The North Stradbroke Island Historical Museum is a great place to find out the answers to these questions – and lots more – and to connect with the people and the history of the Island.
Stroll through the beautiful buildings and experience Stradbroke (Minjerribah) history through the eyes of the people who have lived here.
There are a range of permanent displays about the Quandamooka people, convict history, shipwrecks and maritime history, the story of sandmining on the Island, as well as lots of photos of the old fishing shacks, boats and buses that helped kick off the tourism industry on Straddie.
There is also a room dedicated to sharing the story of the Dunwich Benevolent Asylum, and we have a range of photographs and documents to assist family historians.
Make sure you include a visit to the Museum when you’re planning your North Stradbroke Island holiday.
