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.

Cooling off, island-style.

Whew. It’s been kinda warm out here in Moreton Bay this week, but nowhere near as hot as on the mainland, where Brisbane hit 34° yesterday and it’s warming up even further to a forecast 36° on Saturday. Thankfully, here on Lamb Island we’ve been getting cooling north-easterly breezes, and if that’s not enough, we have a number of options if we want to cool down wetly: There’s our own island swimming enclosure as shown above; or if we want sand instead of pebbles, a quick free waterbus trip takes us to Karragarra Island’s beach and enclosure (below).


Then there’s a third option. Many of the Lamb Island kids seem to prefer our barge/boat ramp.
And not least because of its convenient proximity to the adjacent waterbus jetty.
