North Stradbroke Island: Amity Point and Art Gallery


Amity Point, North Stradbroke Island
Visiting Amity Point, the sand bar between Straddie and Moreton Islands, really brought back a lot of good memories we shared at the Urangan Pier, Hervey Bay a couple of years ago. It was the second destination on our itinerary after Brown Lake that day. Sunny blue skies, puffy white clouds, golden yellow sand, emerald sea with calm waters, the setting couldn't be any more perfect for a fishing sight-seeing trip or a beautiful walking tour.

Looks like this kid here has caught a fish on his hook and doing some measuring on it.

Majestic pelicans lining up one after another.
The pier posts seem to be their favorite spot to sunbath.

Unbelievably cold wind and temperatures under the bright sun.

Even Mr. Not-Afraid-of-Cold wore two layers of shirts and yet, still feeling cold.

Flocks of seagulls. These birdies can get pretty irritating at times. Just last year, when I was having a walk on the streets of Surfers Paradise, one of them actually pooped on my hair! #literallygrossandbadluck But I was told it's a sign of good luck, somehow, that I should use it on a lottery ticket or something *facepalm*

We were supposed to drop by the Dunwich news agency for some souvenirs shopping, but unfortunately, time did not permit us to stay any longer for that.
