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

Streets of Lamb Island #1

One upon a previous time, I lived on twelve acres of almost impenetrable bush a couple of kilometres up a narrow dirt track in a tiny valley in Northern New South Wales. But here’s the thing: even though that track is sometimes impassable after heavy rain and/or the car’s diff being ripped out by big rocks in the track’s ‘surface’, I can log onto Google Street View and see the front boundary of that property.

And yet Lamb Island isn’t seeable on Street View, presumably not considered by Google as significant enough to be worth covering. Mind you, far from being a problem, that ‘insignificance’ is part of what makes Lamb Island something of a haven for those of us who want a quiet life far from the madding crowd yet still enjoying access to the madness when we choose it or need something from Bunnings.

Anyway, as part of my self-appointed task of showing Lamb Island to the countless dozen-or-so people who check out this blog occasionally, I’ve decided to every-so-often feature one or another of Lamb Island’s streets, seeing that Google doesn’t. The shot above is of Lucas Drive, the island’s main road, indicated below by the yellow line, while the red arrow shows where the shot is looking from.
