About our home

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! Outstanding, modern Waterfront Home.

Rare find on Canaipa Point Drive, Russell Island, North facing with endless Ocean Views and protected from the southeasterly winds.

Where is it?


Be greeted by an amazing mosaic masterpiece that will set the mood for your visit to Russell Island, the largest of the Southern Moreton Bay Islands. For fishing, there's a jetty at the northern end of the island, with a nearby fenced swimming enclosure for cooling off on a hot day. High tide is best for swimming in tidal pools. Free camping is also available for maximum of three nights.

This is an ideal spot for picnicking in the foreshore park adjacent to the small beach. Sandy Beach is also a fantastic spot for fishing or simply relaxing on the grass, with nearby picnic tables, barbecue area and toilets. Adventurers can take a walk around Rocky Point and spot some of the local wildlife.

Go for a day trip or stay longer, venture in the freshwater wet heath area of Turtle Swamp, where the trees are home to dozens of species of birds and spring wildflowers are a pleasure to discover.

The Southern Moreton Bay Islands beaches are to be enjoyed for their peaceful tranquillity, with early mornings and evenings delightful in their picture postcard beauty.
