Gastronomy is often a big part of our holidays.
When asked ‘what are your favourite things to do on holiday?’ you’ll find that holidaymakers give lots of different answers. Some want a totally relaxing holiday. Others plan to party all night and all day long. Some will want to get out on the sightseeing trail to take in the full experience of what Straddie has to offer, while others will be looking forward to getting into those crystal clear waters. But what they all have in common is they’ll be looking forward to sampling the food available in local restaurants and eateries, especially those that serve up fresh local produce.
Fortunately, the island is littered with Straddie eats – whether you simply want a takeaway pie or cake or you want to go the whole hog with a 4-course dinner by candlelight. The selection available is second-to-none and we’re sure you won’t be disappointed with any establishment. We understand that food is high on every visitor’s wish list when they come on holiday.
That’s why the restaurants here ensure the selection of food on Stradbroke Island is of the highest quality.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the emerging street food scene with food vans located at Cylinder Beach. They offer a great option for informal Straddie eats without ever compromising on quality.
