A blog about Lamb Island in Moreton Bay, Queensland – a unique little paradise under forty kilometres as the seagull flies from Brisbane CBD.
Because of restraints on time, and let’s face it, only limited material on a small island, some posts are being recycled/updated from earlier.
There’s not a comment facility, but if you have a question, you can use the email gizmo near the bottom of the right-hand column.

Okay, but what if you get air-sick?
If and when it does, there are doctors’ surgeries on Macleay and Russell Islands. We also have a 24/7 all-islands paramedic service, an ambulance on each of the islands, and a fast twin-hull ambulance boat to transfer non-urgent cases to a mainland ambulance then to hospital. And if it’s particularly urgent stuff that’s happening, a CareFlight rescue chopper zooms in and flies patients to hospital – arguably as quickly as a regular ambulance from some Brisbane suburbs. That said, none of us really likes hearing that chopper fly over.
