Quandamooka Ownership

Straddie Camping is a proud partnership between the Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC) as shareholders, trustee and Traditional owners of the land, and Indigenous Business Australia (IBA), a Commonwealth Statutory Authority. Straddie Camping is a special partnership of which the entire Quandamooka community is immensely proud.
 
The vision for the Quandamooka people is one in which the Aboriginal community, in partnership with the mainstream community, creates a future where the Island’s spirit, cultural values and the beauty of its lands and seas are conserved and restored. All community members enjoy equal opportunities, working together to shape a healthy and happy future.
