Other Inhabited Islands


Other islands of Moreton Bay within the Redland City area with very small populations include Peel Island and Garden Island.

Peel Island

Peel Island, due west of Dunwich, North Stradbroke Island, is located in a Marine Conservation Park and is managed by Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS).  QPWS Rangers periodically camp overnight on Peel Island as part of their normal operations unless poor weather it predicted. The QPWS Rangers are self sufficient and have their own boat.

Peel Island is a popular tourist destination for day trippers using personal craft. The island is not serviced by barges or passenger ferries however it is located within the main shipping channel between North Stradbroke Island and Cleveland on the mainland.

Evacuation of Peel Island would be to Dunwich on North Stradbroke Island and then to Cleveland with other North Stradbroke Island evacuees if required.

Garden Island

Garden Island, located due west of Macleay Island, is a small island occupied by one family who service themselves via their own boat.  There is no barge or passenger ferry service to Garden Island.

Evacuation of Garden Island would be to Macleay Island and then to Redland Bay with other Macleay Island evacuees if required.
