Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) is an island that lies within Moreton Bay in the Australian state of Queensland. The Quandamooka people are the Traditional Custodians of Minjerribah, which is the second largest sand island in the world after K’Garri (Fraser Island)
The Queensland Government is investing over $24.75 million to support the transition of Minjerribah from its past reliance on sand mining to a new future as a globally recognised destination for cultural and eco-tourism. The transition program, known as Minjerribah Futures, rests on a foundation of Quandamooka culture and sustainability. It seeks to achieve a Minjerribah that is environmentally pristine with a thriving economy.
New infrastructure projects will be delivered as part of Minjerribah Futures to improve island lifestyle:
- a landmark contemporary cultural facility
- a whale interpretation and research facility
- a redeveloped education and training centre
- more aged care beds
- better walking and recreational tracks
- public art place markers in Goompi (Dunwich), Pulan (Amity Point) and Mulumba (Point Lookout); and
- a master plan for Goompi to improve the town’s livability and enhance its role as the tourism gateway to the island.
Minjerribah Futures extends the work of the former North Stradbroke Island Economic Transition Strategy (PDF).
The Minjerribah Futures team is committed to actively engaging with the island community.Since 2011, more than 4,000 submissions have been received as part of ongoing public consultation on Minjerribah’s economic transition.
