Formatted Abstract/Summary

The fixed dunes which form Stradbroke Island rest on a prior landsurface and are surrounded on most sides by a postglacial strand plain. The island did not grow from an offshore bar or spit, and is not therefore a barrier island, as has been supposed. It was formed by drowning, and appeared when interglacial seas flooded over lands that included high areas of blown sand.
