Going to the Mainland

The Island is limited to one super market, the IGA, and there is also a chemist, bakery and Post Office in the same area. This means you don’t have the big supermarkets with the specials and discounts. I also needed to go to the Motor Registration Branch at Cleveland for my License. I left onContinue reading “Going to the Mainland”

Old Jetty and History of Russell Island

Originally posted on Sunrise Today…:
http://moretonbay.biz/part-4-russell-island Russell Island Jetty The first settlers on the island relied on their own resources to take themselves and their produce to market.

Consequences of cutting down trees

There was a whole ecology there in the waterside environment that had the mangrove lined shore with supporting trees and foliage along the shore.

Rocky Point Russell Island

The four Islands that make up the Southern Moreton Bay Islands are flood free, and we do not see those sort of floods that the rest of South East Queensland and Northern NSW experience. Naturally we get some overland water flow, but being small Islands, the water just runs off into the Bay with little effect on personal property.

These Islands are possibly one of the safest havens in South East Queensland, and remain undiscovered by a vast majority of Australians
