STRADBROKE ISLAND (Minjerribah) INDIGENOUS FISHING

A truly special and unique experience.

Stradbroke Island, just off the coast of Brisbane is home to the Quandamooka people. The Quandamooka have lived in the area for tens of thousands of years. Villages existed around the coastal areas and islands and campsites could be found wherever there was freshwater from creeks or water holes.

This brand-new Aboriginal Fishing Experience will involve flying in on your private helicopter for a full-day or half-day, with a focus on fishing and bait collection on the surf beaches of Minjerribah. Learn to fish, cook and flavour your catch with bush-tucker using traditional methods taught by a Quandamooka fishing guide.

The Traditional Owners hold their heads high with a strong identity and culture.

Immerse yourself in the Quandamooka Peoples’ culture exploring the Quandamooka Coast by air and land leaving only footprints behind.

Experience Traditional Aboriginal welcome to country, dance, stories, and traditional arts. Then dine on a native-inspired menu prepared by local Quandamooka chefs.
