Russell Island 


The laid back lifestyle, fishing spots and natural environment of Russell Island are among the delights that await you here.

The largest of the Southern Moreton Bay Islands, and the closest to North Stradbroke Island, Russell Island extends south almost to Jumpinpin Bar on the Gold Coast, the high rises of which can also be seen from some parts of the island.

A bright and colourful community mosaic greets locals and visitors alike as they arrive at the island jetty.

Visit the Southern Moreton Bay Island Museum and public swimming pool. Meet some locals over a drink or meal at the RSL and bowls clubs.

Russell Island is also equipped with a supermarket, public library, medical centre, community centre and petrol station. The natural environment is outstanding, with many public parks and conservation areas to explore, and an abundance of diverse birdlife to discover. A range of holiday and B&B accommodation options are available.

Take a passenger or vehicle ferry from Weinam Creek Marina, Redland Bay.
