Project info

The department is investigating existing public transport infrastructure, services and connections on the island and to the neighbouring mainland including ferry (water taxi and barges), bus, rail, taxi, personalised transport and will examine opportunities to improve access for all passengers. 

Transport and Main Roads is investigating more sustainable travel options to enable people to commute to and from the island more efficiently and create additional opportunities for the local economy.

The draft strategy is expected to be released for consultation in late 2018. 

Transport and Main Roads is working closely with other state government departments, Redland City Council, the Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC), Straddie Chamber of Commerce, business and industry representatives and the broader community to address local needs, reflect the priorities of the island and create additional opportunities for the local economy.

We have already undertaken a survey of residents, business owners and visitors to identify community priorities and concerns about public transport on the island.

Community information sessions 

We have had a great response to our community and visitor survey with more than 760 people telling us how they use public transport on North Stradbroke Island. Based on survey responses, we are now developing different strategies and options for addressing major issues and invite community members, business owners and visitors to attend information sessions at Amity Point, Dunwich and Point Lookout. Attendees will be provided with information about the different types of options that are being considered for improving the public transport system and given the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback. 

This is part of a wider consultation process to help us plan for North Stradbroke Island’s future transport needs.
Come along to a community information session to have your say! 

Community information sessions will be held at the following times and locations on the island.

Thursday 12 July, 12pm–2.30pm Amity Point Community Hall
