Russell Island is situated just off the coast of Brisbane, Queensland Australia. Nestled in behind the great sand Island of North Stradbroke and surrounded by the picturesque waters of the Southern Moreton Bay Island Marine Park.

Tranquility is the key to living on Russell, It has a quiet easy living lifestyle, great fishing within the sheltered waters of the marine park, and mud crabbing at the bottom of your front yard. The bird life is unbelievable, and is one of 125 recognised sanctuaries for bird life in the world.

Russell is a short 15 minute express water taxi ride from Redland Bay or as the locals call it "around the world " trip if you include the other 3 islands within the Southern Moreton Bay region.

It doesn't get any better what's that saying? Beautiful one day, perfect the next!
