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.

Moreton Bay. At our feet.
On Lamb Island, we’re surrounded by many hundreds of square kilometres of Moreton Bay waters, all of it protected from ocean swells by South and North Stradbroke* Islands and Moreton Island. Which means that even a small tinnie can travel all the way from Southport on the Gold Coast to Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast (via the Pumicestone Passage behind Bribie Island) – more than 130 kilometres as the crow flies – without ever actually ‘putting out to sea’. (*That’s North Straddie at far left of shot.)
