Straddie camping wants to improve the camping experience on North Stradbroke Island by developing eco-accommodations.

Old cabins are being moved to replace old accommodations at Myora Caravan Park, managed by a housing co-operative on the Island and new glamping type acommodations will be built to replace them.

Straddie camping chairman Cameron Costello said, “The Amity Eco Project is part of Straddie Camping’s overall sustainability strategy to improve the North Stradbroke Island camping holiday experience and to present the camping grounds in such a way that the nature and culture of North Stradbroke Island is celebrated and respected.”

The accommodations will be built using local know-how, pulling ideas from traditional Australian tent designs and the island’s fishing and beach shacks, while integrating local people’s cultural sensitivity to land, seasons and wildlife.

“This project highlights that we have the capacity to develop pioneering initiatives in this field and to play an important role in the development of Aboriginal tourism in the region,” said Costello.
