    Survivor guide: North Stradbroke Island, Australia


    Whether you’re heading down under to work, see the sights or enjoy the adventure of a lifetime, the last thing you want is to be involved in a travel accident. Australia boasts countless beauty spots, geographical wonders and amazing attractions and you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to drawing up your itinerary. If you’re travelling around Australia and you plan to spend a day or two on North Stradbroke Island, here are some tips to help you make the most of your trip and avoid holiday accidents.

    Staying safe on North Stradbroke Island

    North Stradbroke Island, affectionately known as Straddie, is a beautiful spot located off the coast of Brisbane; it is accessed via ferry from Cleveland. Here, you can do everything from chilling out and soaking up the sun, to snorkelling, scuba diving, whale watching and surfing.

    A popular stop on the traveller trail, North Stradbroke Island offers something for everyone, but it’s advisable to be wary of potential hazards in order to take advantage of the best the island has to offer and reduce your risk of travel injuries. Here are some simple steps to follow:

    • always wear sunscreen; even if it looks dull and grey, the UV index is likely to be high and it’s always best to protect your skin
    • keep out of the midday sun
    • stay hydrated
    • avoid taking large sums of cash with you
    • keep your valuables on your person at all times
    • stay within designated swimming areas and look out for warning flags

    Can I claim compensation for an accident in Australia?

    If you’ve been involved in an accident abroad and you were not to blame, it may be possible to claim travel accident compensation. This is usually viable when trips are organised through UK tour operators and there is a clear example of negligence on their part.

    In order to claim holiday accident compensation, you must have evidence to support your claim and the accident must have occurred within the last 3 years.
