There is a wide range of accommodation available on North Stradbroke Island through Straddie Camping, including new Glamping Tents and even newer Eco Island Tents, which makes its debut in time for Kunjiel.
The annual festival is a three-month calendar of events from July to September that celebrates the culture, country and the Indigenous people of the Quandamooka (Moreton Bay) region.
Curator of the Quandamooka Festival, Avril Quaill, said the Kunjiel was the perfect way to wrap up a very successful festival calendar.
“The Kunjiel is all about celebration, offering a truly inspiring and artistically rich event on one of the most beautiful Islands in Queensland,” Ms Quaill said.
“We have priced tickets for Kunjiel very reasonably so that everyone from Brisbane and beyond can join the Quandamooka People for this celebration. The music and dancing will showcase some of the best Aboriginal entertainers around, there will be great food, and plenty of activities for the kids. It’s also a great time to stay over and explore the island of Minjerribah.”
