What a delight it is to wake to the laughing song of the Kookaburras as they greet the morning.

I have not checked the caravan Sites and do not know if they are overnight or simply day parking for a rest.
I am listing them here as its good to know that Redland Bay has places for caravans and camping…
There is a great deal of evidence of Aboriginal people living on the Southern Moreton Bay Islands of Russell, Lamb, Karragarra and Macleay. On Russell Island, there is an Aboriginal crossing point from the northeast tip across Canaipa Passage to Stradbroke Island. This was the old jetty, removed because this was Aboriginal tribal Land.
Russell Island was originally called Canaipa. It was named Russell Island in the 1840s after Lord John Russell, Secretary of State for the colonies in the 1840s.
Russell Island in Redland City is the biggest of the Southern Moreton Bay Islands, sandwiched between the mainland and North Stradbroke Island in the state of Queensland, Australia. The island is eight kilometers long (north-to-south) and nearly three kilometers wide.
Russell had 1,779 permanent residents in 2006 up 35.9% since 2001. However, this changes dramatically on weekends and holidays when many of the 30% of dwellings on the island which are classified as unoccupied are visited by their owners. Fast ferries and scheduled barges straddle the distance to Redland Bay quickly for most of the day.
In the 2011 Census the population of Russell Island is 2,473, 50.3% female and 49.7% male.
The median/average age of the Russell Island population is 51 years of age, 14 years above the Australian average.
68.8% of people living in Russell Island were born in Australia. The other top responses for country of birth were New Zealand 6.1%, England 5.7%, Scotland 1%, Philippines 1%, Germany 0.9%.
Where did the names come from?
