50436 Drove on the bitumen from Dunwich down the Trans Island Road (Tazi Rd) visiting Brown and Blue Lakes before hitting Main Beach and driving all the way down to Jumpinpin at the southern tip of North Straddie. After one hell of a storm we drove back up the beach to Point Lookout, where it took me 3 attempts to get off the beach at George Nothling Drive. Note to self: let some air out of the tyres, drive harder, or as my wife suggested get a real 4WD. The X-Trail did ok - just needs about 8 inches more ground clearance! Nissan Xtrail Mar 21, 2015

28139 Only did the trip down Main Beach this time, i.e. none of the inland tracks. Coming back it was only 2 hours before high tide, but there was still plenty of sand (though soft) on the beach. No risk of running over any plants growing near the sand dunes. Toyota Prado Apr 22, 2012
27342 The main beach section of Straddie on high tide can be tight in places so be sure to plan your barge trips with the tide. The camping zone on main beach is great, protected from the elemants however make sure you have plently of insect repelant. Great spot for family and great fishing on the southern end. Low tide easy drive. Some of the cuttings from camp sites to beach were chopped up but nothing to worry about! Mazda BT-50 Mar 23, 2012

10646 Some of the inland tracks from amity to point lookout were closed off. Main beach was pretty rough, sand dunes were good fun though, we got caught by the tide on the way back from the sand dunes bit of panic but all good at the end. Jeep Cherokee Mar 30, 2010
