We hopped a ferry with our car to North Stradbroke Island for a few days, which is 30 km SE of Brisbane.  It is the second largest sand island in the world and has a population of 2000.  We camped on Cylinder Beach, near Point Look Out.  The only thing between the water and our tent was a few trees and a small sand dune.  We bush walked along the North Gorge, and hiked to the Blue Lake (which we found out 5.2 km later isn't that blue :)  The North Gorge has an amazing view, and from June until November is known for whale watching during their migrating season. We were fortunate enough to see whales, a sea turtle, and dolphins jumping the waves.  What a beautiful island!
