During the winter school holidays, it’s not just families who head over to beautiful North Stradbroke Island for a relaxing holiday. At this time of year, the whales begin their east coast migration and one of the best spots to sit and watch them is on the headland.
Barefoot Dave, as he’s affectionately known, is a passionate Straddie local and when he is not taking visitors on one of his tours, he loves nothing more than taking a stroll along the North Gorge Boardwalk – where there’s always something different to see.
There’s lots for families to do on Straddie ranging from eco tours, sandboarding, kayaking, fishing trips, surfing and just playing on the beach.
For the budding artists in the family, Straddie offers kids the chance to get creative with hands-on art classes at Starfish Studio.
