Artist's Description

Straddie – A Natural Wonder Land
18 Mile Swamp, a gorgeous wetland of water lilies.
North Stradbroke Island, off the coast of Queensland, Australia, is a Noah’s Ark of rare and endangered land and sea creatures and habitat, with even a remnant rainforest at Myora Springs near Dunwich. There are 18 species of land mammals including wallabies, kangaroos, echidnas, koalas and bandicoots. Marine mammals include whales, dolphins and dugong.
Reptiles include turtles, tortoise and lizards. There are several frog species and hundreds of bird species from raptors to honeyeaters and migratory wading birds.
Plants range from towering bloodwoods to tiny native violets and fragrant native jasmine.
A highlight for all visitors to Stradbroke Island is the North Gorge Headland walk. Commencing from the information board at Point Lookout opposite Fishes Cafe, the walk offers spectacular views from the rocky outcrops overlooking the Pacific Ocean and along the Island’s white sandy beaches. The view over the gorge is breathtaking.

Explore the headland from one side to the other and you’ll find the two gorges that help define this wild and beautiful terrain. Sit awhile and see passing turtles and dolphins, or manta rays gracefully gliding by. From June to October migrating humpback whales are a common sight.
Blue Lake National Park is part of Naree Budjong Djara National Park. This attractive park protects Blue Lake, an area of cultural significance to the Quandamooka people. Walk the 5.2km (return) track to the lake through wallum woodlands, flowering heath and stunted eucalypts. Wear good walking shoes, take a hat and water. Medium level of fitness required.
Dedicated to Dave, our tour guide on the island.
