Glamping trial at North Stradbroke

One of Queensland’s most popular camping grounds, Amity Point on North Stradbroke Island, began developing and evaluating eco-prototypes this month.

The project aims to market test, evaluate and fine-tune the units for possible use in clusters within other Straddie Camping camping grounds on North Stradbroke Island.

The structures will draw inspiration from traditional Australian tent styles and the quintessential North Stradbroke Island beach shacks, while also integrating the Quandamooka people’s cultural considerations in design concept and application.

Importantly, sustainability initiatives and aesthetics that strongly relate to the island’s traditional structures will be incorporated into designs.

The project will provide display sites that showcase eco-friendly accommodation in natural areas with associated interpretation information, including permanent signage explaining the design principles and sustainability measures adopted, along with an
explanation of the Aboriginal cultural considerations involved in the design of the structures.

Minjerribah Camping has appointed local builder Pacific Palms Constructions headed by Tim Powell who is working with the Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation to construct the prototypes. Building began on 7 May.

Straddie Camping chairman Cameron Costello said, “Straddie Camping is committed to environmental conservation and improvement in our camping grounds. To that effect, the project will involve minimal impact construction methods, and landscaping will use local species endemic to North Stradbroke Island to create aesthetically pleasing surroundings, which are friendly to the native wildlife.”
