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.

Always nice to see.
Various parts of Moreton Bay, including most of the south-eastern side of Lamb Island, are now marine national parks in which fishing is prohibited (except from the shore itself). And that's good news for aquatic critters, especially turtles. Around Lamb Island, we often see their heads pop up for a quick gulp of air, and considering the fact that they were once hunted almost to extinction at a local level, it's always a delight to catch that brief glimpse of them.
