A visit to Redland Bay is not complete without a ferry ride around the four nearby Islands. Russell and Macleay Island are the two biggest with shops etc. Both Lamb and Karragarra are smaller and have no shops, but people do live there.
On Macleay Island, the pub is only a short walk up the hill from the terminus. They often have live entertainment on the weekends. The island has a bowls club that serves delicious food. If you wish to visit, you can organise for their loyalty bus to pick you up at the ferry. At Russell Island, it is only a short walk to their lovely cafe.
At Redland Bay, the only cafe with ferry views is the Pelican View Cafe. From their balcony, you can watch the ferry come and go. They serve delicious cafe food and drink, however, it is not handicapped friendly.
From the terminus which is connected to city buses, you can take a lovely walk along foreshore past lots of mangroves and overhanging trees. For extra exercise, take the 62 steps up behind the hotel and back down again.
