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.

Our home is girt by bay. And we like it that way.

Lucas Passage separates Macleay Island (left) and Lamb Island (right) and is only a few hundred metres wide at its narrowest. And at low tide, only its squelchy muddy bottom might thwart an attempt to walk across it. Over the years, there’s been occasional talk of building some kind of causeway to link the two islands, but while that might give us Lamb Islanders easier access to Macleay Island’s shopping and recreational facilities, the idea of their two-and-a-half thousand people being able to impact on our little four-hundred-plus community hasn’t appealed to us.

(A note re the post title for those who may not get it: Australia’s embarrassingly-gauche
national anthem contains the world’s most cringe-worthy line ‘Our home is girt by sea’.)
