Naree Budjong Djara National Park

Currently about 50 per cent of North Stradbroke Island is protected as Naree Budjong Djara National Park. The Quandamooka people are the Traditional Owners of Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island). They welcome visitors to Naree Budjong Djara ‘My Mother Earth’ and ask that you respect this special place. Download island map.

The National Parks on Minjerribah are managed under Joint Management Agreements between the Quandamooka people, and the State Government. About Naree Budjong Djara National Park

Minjerribah Recreation Area

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. It is managed under the Recreation Areas Management Act 2006.

The Minjerribah Recreation Area on North Stradbroke Island covers the following sites:

  • Adams Beach, Bradbury's Beach, Amity Point, Adder Rock, Home Beach and Cylinder Beach Camping Grounds.
  • the designated beach camping areas at Flinders Beach and Main Beach.
  • the foreshores at Flinders Beach and Main Beach.

RAM_NSI_MAPMake 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.
