Lamb Island Queensland

Just 2km by 1km, it’s easy to get around this peaceful little island. The second smallest of the Southern Islands, it has a swimming enclosure and all the peace and quiet you want, particularly as it is virtually traffic-free. You can meet the locals at the recreation clubhouse. There’s also a community hall, public tennis court and a first-aid facility.

If you’re into boating and fishing, or enjoy solitude and the natural environment, this is the place for you. It is separated from the much larger Macleay Island by narrow Lucas Passage.

Southern Moreton Bay Islands

Originally subdivided in the early 1970s, a bridge was promised by the then government. This never eventuated and residents are now feeling the pressure of transport to the mainland for some shopping trips, as mainland parking has become very scarce.

The Bay Islands enjoy a quiet, relaxed lifestyle with many retirees, pensioners and more recently, an influx of younger families looking for some safety and security, away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland.
