Artist's Description


Located on North Stradbroke Island, Point Lookout is one of the greatest land based whale watching spots in Australia. From May all through the winter season whales can be spotted here on their annual migration.

The first inhabitants arrived at least 40,000 years ago and North Stradbroke Island is now home to the Noonuccal, Nughie and Goenpul Aboriginal people, who call it Minjerribah. The first recorded European sighting was in 1770 when James Cook named Point Lookout. Colonial settlement began in the 1820′s.

North Stradbroke Island is an Australian island in the state of Queensland, 30 km southeast of the capital Brisbane. Before 1896 the island was part of the Stradbroke Island. In that year a storm separated it from South Stradbroke Island, forming the Jumpinpin Channel. It is known colloquially as Straddie.

It is the second largest sand island in the world. On the island there are three small towns, a number of lakes and beaches along most of the seaward coastline with rocky outcrops at Point Lookout. An Aboriginal presence on the island has been long and on-going resulting in a successful native title determination. Tourism is a major and growing industry on the island. The island has been the site for sand mining for more than 60 years. Tourism and currently mining are the island’s main industries.
