Following the success of last year’s pop-up flash camp on Queensland’s North Stradbroke Island, Straddie Camping has launched a permanent flash camping site near the island’s most popular tourist village, Point Lookout.

North Stradbroke Island adds a touch of glam to the great outdoors

The mini-village of ten flash camping tents is located at Adder Rock on the northern coast, with a beach directly in front of the camping ground.

Flash camp becomes a permanent fixture on North Stradbroke Island.

The “glamping” tents offer high-quality bedding and linen, power, communal facilities, and restaurants and shops are within easy access of the camp site.

Straddie Camping acting CEO Hugo Johnston said the launch follows a demand for more “flash camp” accommodation.

“We experimented with Flash Camp during holiday periods, and it became clear that there was a growing market for this style of camping so we decided to make it a permanent feature of our camping option,” said Johnston.

“There’s a revival of interest in camping, but while many people are attracted by the idea of camping under the stars, they’re dissuaded by all the work and hassle that goes with bringing in all the equipment and the potential lack of comfort.

The launch of the new flash camp coincides the whale migration season, with whales passing by until November.

“With our glamping option you have all the benefits of being in a traditional camping ground and out in the open, but with comforts that are more typical of hotels.”
