A blog about Lamb Island in Moreton Bay, Queensland – a unique little paradise under forty kilometres as the seagull flies from Brisbane CBD.

There’s good news, and better news.

First, the good news: Redland City Council has just announced that it’s awarded a multi-squillion-dollar contract for the development of the Weinam Creek foreshore where our mainland waterbus terminus is located. The plans include apartment complexes, a great new terminus, a 400-berth marina, a waterfront esplanade, retail shops, and cafés and restaurants. According to everyone concerned, this development will ‘revitalise’ this section of Redland Bay.

Then the better news: Those of us who live out here on the Southern Moreton Bay Islands are going to have all this sophistication and revitalisation just a quick waterbus ride away, yet without our peace and quiet being compromised. That’s what I’d call the best of both worlds.
