Point Lookout 

 

Set on Straddie’s north-eastern tip are some of the best views and whale watching opportunities in Australia.

Take the 1.5km North Gorge Walk for stunning surf, beach and sea panoramas and watch the sea spurt high through Straddie’s renowned blow hole.

The North Gorge Walk offers the finest vantage points on the island for watching dolphins and turtles all year round and to spot migrating humpback whales as they pass by from June to November.

The unspoiled natural environment includes 30kms of pristine surf beach and towering, rocky headlands.

Enjoy patrolled beaches, dive sites, a multitude of dining options, art galleries, boutique stores featuring resort wear and gifts, Sunday markets, and catch a wave at the picturesque Cylinder Beach.

The white sand dunes near Point Lookout are perfect for sand boarding – a favourite activity among visitors and locals alike.

With a range of accommodation options, from camping and backpacker to luxury units and holidays homes, Point Lookout is ideal for a short stay or an extended, sub-tropical island escape.
