North Stradbroke Island is an Australian island in the state of Queensland, 30 km southeast of the capital Brisbane. Before 1896 the island was part of the Stradbroke Island. In that year a storm separated it from South Stradbroke Island, forming the Jumpinpin Channel. It is known colloquially as Straddie.
The island is about 38 km long and 11 km wide. North Stradbroke Island is the second largest sand island in the World. North Stradbroke, South Stradbroke and Moreton Island act as a barrier to Moreton Bay. The permanent population the island is around 2000 but the number of people on the island swells significantly during the holiday season. The island is only accessible by vehicular or passenger ferries leaving from Cleveland.
