We recently had our first family holiday to Stradbroke Island. We had a fantastic 5 days there - it really feels like an island holiday but you are only 1 hour on the ferry from Cleveland (1/2 hour approx from Brisbane City).

And the best part was the kids thought taking the car on the ferry was the coolest thing ever!

We stayed at Pandanus Palms Resort, which sits on top of the hill at Point Lookout. The views were breathtaking and we booked an ocean view unit to guarantee this.

The resort is older, but perfect for families with a good pool and tennis court. The townhouse style accommodation was a good size with dining, kitchen, lounge and an outside area all downstairs and 2 good size double bedrooms and bathroom upstairs.

There are full kitchen and laundry facilities in each unit so perfect for holidays with young children.

The only negative thing is because they are up on the hill you have to drive everywhere.

A great beach for kids is Cylinder Beach. It is easy to park, is sheltered and at low tide there's a good area with no waves for the little ones. It is also patrolled and has a kid's playground.

We also loved Deadmans beach. Down the far right end of the beach are rock pools the kids can play in, spot fish, crabs etc. There is also a huge sand dune here which the kids loved riding their boogie boards down.

Overall we had a fantastic holiday.

TIP: Always book your ferry as soon as you have booked your accommodation as the ferrys fill up quickly.
