North Stradbroke Island has great four-wheel-drive bush tracks and kilometres of sandy beaches you can drive on. Vehicle Access Permits are required for driving in designated beach and bush areas on the Island. The permit fee maintains, improves and supports the Island's natural areas. Buy one online, or purchase at our offices on the Island.
Don't forget that your permit must be displayed at all times, and that your permit can be cancelled or suspended by Authorised Officers should you not comply with the conditions of issue. Take the time to download our 4WDriving Brochure to ensure that your four wheel drive experience is fun, safe, and kind to the environment.
NOTE: All-wheel-drive vehicles, motor bikes and quad-bikes are not permitted in the Recreation Area. Should you be found with a permit affixed to an all-wheel-drive vehicle, the permit will be confiscated and any fees paid will be forfeited.
Should you sell your vehicle or require a replacement permit, please refer to our Vehicle Access Permit Terms & Conditions for what to do.
