Driving on North Stradbroke Island
North Stradbroke Island is unique as it is the only sand island within Queensland that has bitumen roads and therefore a conventional car can be driven on the island. All three townships are linked by well maintained bitumen roads.
Four wheel drives can access Flinders and Main Beach only by obtaining a beach permit prior to driving on the beaches. The cost of an annual 4WD beach permit is $42.30 per year. These can be obtained from the Visitor Centre at Cleveland, Stradbroke Ferries, Straddie Holiday Parks at Dunwich and a number of outlets on the island.
