All Island Vibe attendees and participants must book accommodation!
Illegal camping is a huge issue for local residents, national parks, the local council and the police.
If you choose to free-camp, it reflects badly on the Festival, and rangers and police will deliver on-the-spot fines. Please do the right thing by Island Vibe and camp in one of the many great campsites on the island!
If you plan to camp in a tent, car or van , well you're in luck! North Stradbroke Island has 6 camp grounds and 2 beach camps ready to host you for the most amazing camping experience you've ever had!
Our personal favourite, and the closest to the festival site, is Adder Rock Campground (in photo in the background of this web page).
Situated ten minute walk from the festival in lush parkland directly beside beautiful Flinders Beach, Adder Rock is where the majority of Island Vibe artists and crew are accommodated and there is a super fun, yet deliciously relaxed vibe here at all times.
The little break off the Adder Rock headland is perfect for catching some choice waves and the wide beach is an excellent place to watch the sunset, do some yoga or catch some solar rays. The water is an intoxicating turquoise blue, so be warned, you will fall in love with this place!
To check prices and availabilities for all campgrounds and beach camps, go to the Minjerribah Camping website (previously known as Straddie Camping).
For 2021, you will need to book your camping directly through Minjerribah Camping.

Wanna lush it up for Island Vibe? There is a range of super stylin' options close to the festival site. These include small or massive holiday houses, units, apartments and resorts.
We highly recommend Allure Stradbroke Resort, right across the street from the festival site and 2 minute from the beach (this is where we're staying!). And of course, Dolphin Holiday Accommodation for beautiful houses, units and apartments all around the island.
For smaller budgets and larger groups, Minjerribah Island Accommodation is located walking distance from the ferry and both water taxis in Dunwich, as well as 50m from the bus stop to Point Lookout (which stops by the festival site) and 3min walk to the Foodworks. As the old Barracks / Holiday camp, it has just been refurbished and they represent excellent value, sleeping 145 people in 2 or 3 ppl bedrooms, for $30/pp/night including linen. They are on the waterfront at 7 Cunningham St, Dunwich. Find out more on their website, Facebook or by calling Marie-Claire on (07) 3409 9445.
