Stradbroke Island Oyster Festival

A ferry went from Russell island to Dunwich, Stradbroke Island for the festival, but we were unable to get seat.

So we went by bus to Cleveland, then bus 258 to the jetty where for $10 we took a ferry to Stradbroke Island.

There is a bus stop right outside the ferry which takes you around the Island. We walked over a small bridge to the Sports Oval where tents were set  up in the centre and stalls selling oysters around the border.

There was a small group running crab races for charity…Crabs sat in a bucket and when splashed with water went wild, they were then tipped into a circle and scattered off soon as the wire was lifted. Number 19 seemed to be the one to beat.
