Blue Lake National Park
As you might have guesses by the name, the main attraction of the park is the blue lake or window lake as it’s known by locals. It is pretty much in pristine condition giving visitors the chance to enjoy natural sights, colonies of birds (a great place for those who enjoy bird watching), local flora, as-well as offering some paths to trek and enjoy nature (though you are heavily encouraged to thread lightly in order to maintain the beauty and health of the park)
Given it’s protected status, visitors are not allowed to camp, make open fires of bring domesticated animals with them. That said, the blue lake national park still remains as a great option for a day tour while on Stradbroke island.
Camp on the beautiful beach
What better way to enjoy the natural beauty of the island right? Stay in protected areas with amenities while you ensure you have the least impact on the environment ( and possibly get the most enjoyment out of the experience)
I know mentioning a National Park on which you are not allowed to camp is provably a great way to disappoint readers, thus, for all those nature loving travelers that would like the chance to camp out under the stars, let me provide you with Straddie camping a great resource to read up on the best places to camp (some of them even offering pet-friendly grounds) around Stradbroke
