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.

We islanders pull together. Some of us unsuccessfully.

Life on Lamb Island isn’t always idyllically peaceful. Last Sunday, for example, hostilities broke out between us and the inhabitants of neighbouring Macleay Island, with the held-every-so-often Inter-Island Tug-Of-War. There’s a place where our islands are only around 300 metres apart, and the joke is that various teams from both islands try to drag the islands closer together (and stay out of the water) using an extreeeeemely long rope supplied by our vehicular barge operators. What’s that you ask? Who won? Well, if you really must know, in the main event our Lamb Island Tuggers were defeated by Macleay Island’s Pub Paradise Pullers (magnanimously shown above).
