Lamb Island is the second smallest of the Southern Moreton Bay Islands, measuring approximately 2 km long and 1 km wide. The island is home to a residential population of 426 people according to the 2011 Census.
Lamb Island has a small kiosk that provides both grocery items and takeaway food. There is a tennis court for hire, a Bowls Club with a community hall adjacent that are all within easy reach of the island’s ferry terminal located on the south western coastline. Holiday accommodation is also available on the island.
Clarks Point at the Northern end of the island is accessible at low tide and is a pretty sandy point fringed by mangroves. There is a swimming enclosure about ½ way down the island on the eastern side with a shady picnic area with electric BBQ.
Lamb Island is mainly residential, with some areas allocated to community and commercial land uses. Residential land use is preferred, as well as the integration of more open space. Development strategies aim to maintain the visual amenity of the Island. The island’s road network is a mix of sealed and unsealed roads.
