Top bars, restaurants and cafes to eat at on North Stradbroke Island:

2. For Breakfast: The Blue Room Cafe

We loved the outdoor beach shack style of the Blue Room Cafe, be sure to get a seat with a view to enjoy our coffee and healthy locally made breakfast. Don't miss stopping in next door to the colourful Green Room grocery store if you want to stock up on picnic snacks or the Prawn shop for some freshly caught seafood.

3. For Gelato: Oceanic Gelati Bar and Bella Balena

After a long day at the beach, stop and relax with an ice cream. There are two Gelato options in Point Lookout Village, the Oceanic Gelati Bar and Bella Balena Gelateria. Once you've ordered, take a seat on the grass and relax with a few.

For a casual dinner and afternoon for barefoot bowls, we recommend heading to the Bowls club. Located just a short drive from Point Lookout Village.

5. For Lunch or Dinner: Fish and chips dinner at Fishes at the Point

Also located along Point Lookout Village is Fishes and the Point fish and chip shop, it's another great option to get takeaway to enjoy with a view. We loved sharing their Fishermans basked option.

6. For afternoon drinks: The Little Ship Club

The Little Ship Club is located on the waterfront at One Mile in Dunwich. It's a great spot for n afternoon drink on the lawn overlooking the calm waters of Moreton Bay. If you enjoy history, there's also some great shipping artefacts in the area and the island cemetery nearby, home to graves from the Typhoid pandemic when the island was used as a quarantine station.
