Community support

SeaLink’s commitment to North Stradbroke and the Southern Moreton Bay Islands extends over and above the Company’s supply of regular ferry services.

The Company’s longstanding association with the islands has come with a considerable commitment to the local communities and those groups and organisations that exist within them. From the very beginning, SeaLink South East Queensland (formerly Stradbroke Ferries) has worked to foster strong relationships with these island communities and provide support in the form of donated prizes and in-kind travel to local groups and organisations.

We have provided significant contributions and support to the Elders and Indigenous community; sporting clubs; local schools; special events; emergency services and essential services such as the daily newspapers and Australia Post; and much more

SeaLink South East Queensland proudly supports community events on the Bay Islands, providing discounted fares and complimentary tickets for use as fundraising prizes. The same support is also provided to community and charity events across the Redlands.

SeaLink SEQ sponsorship applications are now open for 2023/2024.

  • To ensure a fair and streamlined process, please note due to the large volume of requests received on a regular basis throughout the year, we have implemented an updated application procedure.
