Southern Moreton Bay Islands

Take a boat ride across Moreton Bay to one of the four inhabited Southern Moreton Bay Islands and relax away from the everyday hustle and bustle.

Start with morning coffee by the slipways in Redland Bay then catch a passenger or vehicular ferry to Russell, Macleay, Karragarra and Lamb islands.

There, immerse in the natural playgrounds of these beautiful island gems.

Wander through wetlands and conservation areas, browse local galleries, play barefoot bowls, enjoy a beachside barbecue, take a dip at one of the netted swimming enclosures and experience the bay lighting up in glorious colour as the sun sets over the water.
