Minjerribah Recreation Area - North Stradbroke Island

In 2012, areas which had historically been managed by Redland City Council, were declared the Minjerribah Recreation Area. Straddie Camping now manages these areas under a new management framework, operated by Indigenous Business Australia and the Island’s Traditional Owners, the Quandamooka People.

Queensland has seven recreation areas established under the Recreation Areas Management Act 2006. In recreation areas, nature-based recreation is encouraged but carefully planned and managed to protect these places for conservation. The Recreation Management Act 2006, outlines best practice whilst in a Recreation Area as well as the penalties that apply for non-compliance.

The Minjerribah Recreation Area on North Stradbroke Island covers the camping grounds, beach camping areas and beaches that allow four-wheel driving, and covers the following sites:

  • the township campgrounds of Adams Beach, Bradbury's Beach, Amity Point, Adder Rock, Home Beach and Cylinder Beach.
  • the designated beach camping areas at Flinders Beach and Main Beach.
  • the foreshores at Flinders Beach and Main Beach.
A range of new regulatory signs provide information on what you can and cannot do within the Minjerribah Recreation Area, so make sure you understand the regulatory signs and all regulatory notices before entering these areas.

Make sure that you have a 4WD Permit if you plan to drive on the beaches or camp in any of the camping grounds. Permits can be purchased on the Straddie Camping website, or at our offices in Dunwich, Amity Point, Adder Rock or Cylinder Beach. Camping is not permitted in any other area on North Stradbroke Island.
You may bring your dog with you when you camp in the beach camping areas. There is a limit of 2 dogs per campsite, and dogs must be on a lead and under control at all times.
Even if you are just enjoying a day at the beach, the Recreation Areas Management (RAM) regulations apply, so you should keep informed. Rangers patrol the beaches and beach camping areas to ensure that people do the right thing. They also make sure that the Island's foreshores, dune systems, bushland and freshwater systems are cared for to maintain not only their scenic appeal, but also to protect the Island’s unique natural and Aboriginal cultural heritage.
