Staying on South Stradbroke Island at Couran Cove Resort was a great experience. The natural wonders of the island are on display for all to enjoy. We were treated to sights of dolphins and humpback whales from the dunes on the ocean side of the island. Wandering along the many tracks from the resort we saw all kinds of native and migrating birds, several types of wallabies and a lace monitor lizard. Sadly the dining facilities were meagre, only the Spa Island eatery was open during our stay. Would have liked to try out the fine-dining restaurant, but it was closed during our stay. The room overlooking the lagoon was a great place to watch various water-birds, fish and turtles swimming below our room.
