a short morning walk around Point Lookout and Frenchman's Beach on a stormy summer's day in Queensland. After a good breakfast, it was a great way to work off the calories, blow the hair around and then shelter inside for coffee in-between rain showers. Spectacular...More

All the beaches on Stradbroke were clear of rubbish and a pleasure to stroll particularly in the cool of late afternoon

The beaches here are really beautiful. The sand is soft and white. Even during the holiday season, the beach is not crowded. Very peaceful.
