Amity is well known as a sleepy little fishing village on the north-western side of North Stradbroke Island, Queensland.

Locals and tourists alike enjoy quiet afternoons here at the Jetty, as they idly watch recreational fishermen casting lines, or swimming and enjoying the sunset.

Go on a stroll and you can find people camping, most of them holidaymakers. From time to time, you’ll come across a few who are packing up and heading home unwillingly, and promising themselves that they will come back .

Amity is a great place to watch the sun go down, or watch birds in flight, as you reflect in the calm waters of Moreton Bay.

A favoured spot, the jetty is also the perfect place to watch pelicans and even dolphins at play. Sunset at Amity Point is magical with the silhouette of the jetty in the foreground.

 This small seaside village is situated near the tranquil waters of Moreton Bay. Amity Point is the smallest of the three residential communities on Stradbroke Island, and its size gives it a unique, laid-back charm, making it the perfect place for a restful break.

Because it is late in the afternoon and sunset time, the tones in these photographs is warm and includes oranges, yellows and reds.

Only 46 kilometres off the coast of Brisbane, Amity Point can be reached easily by taking a ferry to Dunwich. From there, you can ride either a taxi or a bus for a 20-minute ride to Amity Point.

I hope you enjoyed this series of images from this beautiful peaceful afternoon at Amity. This is Amity.
