Congratulations to Straddie Camping on achieving the trifecta of Ecotourism Australia certification: Advanced Ecotourism, Respecting Our Culture, and Climate Action Business certifications!
Straddie Camping offers a diverse range of camping and accommodation options across various locations on North Stradbroke Island. They have just achieved Advanced Ecotourism certification for their campsites at Cylinder Beach, Adder Rock and Amity Point. Straddie Camping offer a more ‘back to nature’ camping getaway, with hundreds of powered and un-powered camping sites nestled among sand dunes overlooking the island’s iconic beaches.
Straddie Camping are dedicated to protecting their environment, are actively working towards neutralising their carbon footprint, and have recently implemented a carbon offset option for all guests. They are also heavily engaged with the local Quandamooka community and offer a number of cultural experiences run by Indigenous guides, including interactive and educational demonstrations by local Indigenous artists and storytellers.
“Through consultations with our Elders and the Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation, we work together to protect our lands and sea country in many ways, including taking part in cultural heritage management, Environmental Impact Assessments, negotiating over developments, educating the public and maintaining land and sea management responsibilities. Caring for our Country is our business.”
North Stradbroke Island is accessible by Ferry, and is an easy drive from both Brisbane and the Gold Coast, making it a fantastic weekender destination, but the Island has so much to offer, you’ll want to make it an extended getaway!
