Russell Island has the highest bushfire risk of the Southern Moreton Bay Islands, with the majority of the island being identified as having a high to very high bushfire risk.  The properties at greatest risk are those located at the southern end of the island in the Sandy Beach and Rocky Point areas.  There is a large area of inaccessible swamp south of Glendale Road which is boarded on the eastern side by the Sandy Beach community.  If the prevailing winds during a bushfire event are from the south or west, they are likely to drive the fire towards the at risk properties.  The main power line from the mainland supplying power to the Southern Moreton Bay Islands and North Stradbroke Island also runs across this area, putting the power supply to these islands at risk.

Flood prone, storm tide and drainage constrained land mapping has identified the potential for storm tide inundation to have significant inland penetration during a severe storm event which has the potential to isolate communities on Russell Island.  Communities located at the southern end of Russell Island such as those at Sandy Beach and Rocky Point are particularly vulnerable.  For the Sandy Beach area on the south eastern tip of Russell Island, indications are that the primary access road – Glendale Road, could experience flooding to the west of Jingella Avenue effectively isolating the entire area
