Day 35 - Isles of wreckage and mosquitoes

Day 35 - Isles of wreckage and mosquitoes
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

This week in South East Queensland

FOUR inhabited islands lie nestled in the shallow waters of southern Moreton Bay. Some time ago these were subdivided and sold off as cheap residential blocks with the promise they will enormously appreciate in value once a bridge is built across to them from the mainland. To date there's no definite plans for the bridges to replace the regular ferry and water taxi service. Many houses on these isolated mosquito infested islands are up for sale, many still amongst the cheapest in the whole of South East Queensland.

Today's trek takes me up the length of Russell Island, starting with crossing the Melomy Wetland then following the main roads up the island's 8 kilometre length taking hiking tracks where possible until reaching the jetty, from where I catch the boat up to the smaller Karragarra Island and hike around its circumference.
