Welcome to Straddie Aero Club...

The secret is out..!! Yes... North Stradbroke Island is an unexplored paradise. Fly in and you will immediately feel like you are hundreds of miles from anywhere.

Leave the hustle and bustle of city life behind and relax on this glorious sub-tropical Island. Explore our pristine beaches, go fishing, play golf, go scuba diving or bush walking. Be picked up at the airfield for a 4wd Eco-Tour. Straddie has it all.

How about lunch at one of the many fresh water lakes or maybe prawns and champagne on the beach while you enjoy the tranquility and splendid views?

The Straddie Aero Club offers its members a whole range of activities. Fly in with a picnic basket and relax with the local wildlife or fly in for breakfast and cook bacon and eggs on the club BBQ.

Stay for an hour, a day or a week. It's up to you!
