Couran Resort Stradbroke Island Queensland

The trip starts with a one hour boat ride on the Resort’s own ‘Big Cat’  which is a fabulous looking
vessel from Marina Mirage which is on the  Gold Coast. Here you take off from the elegant Marina Mirage, located
next to the 6 star Palazzo Versace, past coves and side  beaches until you get to the Island.
You are formally met and greeted and taken as a group to a point where you are given your room package.
The accommodation is reasonable…mine was a room with all the facilities overlooking the front garden
where the wallabies graze at dawn and dusk. All rooms overlook this front garden rich with Paper bark gums and tropical
The restaurant is within the huge luxury pool complex  complete with a
swim-in bar. There are chairs and umbrellas  and small relaxing areas for privacy. It is very elegant and well
designed. The restaurant has very reasonably priced  meals..continental breakfast was $5.00.
The resort Bus goes to the  surf each with views across to the Gold Coast twice a day  and is free for guests. The bus stop is possibly the most stunning bus  stop in the world…sea eagles behind, GoldCoast  skyline before, and the sand are full of Pipis which I collected and  took to the chef and for $7.00 he cooked me a feast for  my dinner.
It is a very private beach if you are into free sun bathing or total privacy…and the sands are soft and white and the beach virtually people free for 22 kms. Between the beach and the Resort are marshes resplendent with cabbage Palms
and beautiful river gums. This is truly a photographers paradise.
