Myora Springs Stradbroke Island

Myora Springs Stradbroke Island

Myora Springs, sometimes also referred to as Moongalba (sitting down place), is a place to be explored and enjoyed peacefully. Erosion and vegetation loss, including the particularly valuable mangroves, was becoming a big problem in the early 2010s, before a raised walkway and viewing platform was installed. Take a slow walk through the area, tuning your senses to the sights, sounds and smells of the forest. Enjoy the wildlife and read up on the local area through informative signage. A rare breed of mammal, the false water rat, was thought to be extinct until it was discovered living here in 1978.

North Stradbroke Island, known as Minjerribah by its custodial owners, has a rich history stretching back at least 25,000 years of inhabitation by the Quandamooka people. With its fresh water and teeming wildlife it is no surprise to learn Myora Springs was a favoured camping place of the local people. The banks feature parts of large middens, which contain, among other things, cockle, oyster and whelk shells.

Yura Tours…will be happy to take you to the Springs and tell you about her experiences at the Springs as a child. She told of how when the tide was in the Springs were half hot and half cold because of the icy spring water
