All aboard for your Island Hopping Experience -

Brisbane is surounded by many lovely islands and I had the opporrtunity recently to explore some of these places when I organised an outing for a small group of people. These islands sit in Moreton Bay, in the south east corner of Brisbane.

The islands include Karragarra, MaCleay, Lamb and Russell and are easily accessible from the Redland Bay region, from the Banana Street Ferry Terminal.

The two smaller islands are;

1: Karragarra Island, which is approximately half a kilometre wide by four kilometres long. There no shops on this island and you can easily walk along or across the island in 20-40 minutes.

2: Lamb Island is second smallest in size, about one kilometre by five kilometres. It is a pleasant island for walking and this island has a kiosk near the jetty.

You can visit one island or all of the islands if you want to do a quick discovery tour during one day to get a little taste of what these islands offer'. A suggested day itinerary and some more information on how to do this and some more photos can be found on my article Island Hopping Around Brisbane.

If your feel like making it more of an adventure, consider taking your bicycle with you to the islands so you can ride around and see a little more than by foot. However, if you are after just a preview of the islands and are happy pondering and walking around the shorelines during your first time visit, this is good too.

Visit the official island information website for learning more about these places. Ferry timetables and prices can be found here.

It can really be a good day out!

"It can really be a good day out". Is that really your idea of an article about the Bay Islands? Risible.
