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.

A veranda designed for gin-and-tonic.

If anything says ‘sub-tropical’ it’s the architectural style dubbed ‘Queenslander’. Such houses, like this one on the north-western side of Lamb Island (incidentally, with water views) are raised high off the ground to allow cooling breezes underneath, and are also shaded by deep verandas. And of course, a few strategically-placed palms tend to add to that sub-tropical feel, too.
