Karragarra and Lamb part 6 Karragarra and Lamb part 6 Presentation Transcript

  • Lamb and Karragarra are like gated communities. For the most part it’s only residents or their visitors who come to the islands.
  • 2 police stations over 4 small islands = you getting the old time experience of you knowing the coppers and vice versa. (not that there’s much crime anyhow)
  • You can use a small swimming enclosure on Lamb.
  • “My husband was at me and at me to move to the islands. There was no way that I was leaving Brisbane....... I endedup giving in. That was over 20 years ago. Now, I couldn’t ever see myself leaving.” (conversation with island librarian)
  • Whale watching can be on your to do list from Jun to Nov each year. This is because the majestichumpbacks migrate from Antarctica to calving grounds near the Great Barrier Reef. You can see them out near Stradbroke island.
  • Karragarra and Lamb islands are one of South East Qlds’ best kept secrets which I find strange with >3million people living next door. I guess its because not a lot of those 3 million make the effort to go over which allows the islands to keep their quiet, friendly feel. And that is great.
  • You go to the mainland. Shop up a storm. Go to your events. Run around doing this andthat. And then return to your sanctuary. Perfect.
  • Islander Quote: “My daughter appreciates going to Kmart because we don’t go over to the mainland often.”
  • Wiggle your toes on one of Lambs’ little sandy beaches.
  • You don’t get any takeaway on Lamb and Karragarra. No Maccas, KFC, Pizza Hut etc etc. You may love that because you’re healthier and when you do have it, it’s a little more special.
  • 2 primary schools on the islands and your kids travel free on the ferry.(I think youmay travel free on the ferry if you’re taking them to school. Don’t quote me tho)
  • High school children get to mix with other children when they go to high school on the mainland. It’s also a free ferry trip to and from + a bus meets them both ends.
  • A big cruiser boat or a little tinny. It doesn’t matter the size of your boat because you can still go all of the same places on the Bay.
  • Unfortunately you can’t do this all of the time. There’s no work on the islands(unless you’re a tradie) but you get to choose from 10s of 1000s of jobs in Brisbane. Or fly in/fly out.
  • Inter island tug-O-war. That’s when your island gets a team together and takes the strain and the other island does the same. With the rope over the water between the 2 islands, both teams pull hard. The idea is to pull the other island team into the sea. It’s an event held at different times on the islands. Lots of fun.
  • Islander Quote: “When my daughters’ friends asked her what she did for her birthday she said her family took her overseas for dinner”.
  • Drive on. Jump out and you can enjoy a casual 40 minute ride........nice
  • The other side of Karragarra Island
  • Firm ground Looks like mud but you won’t sink because its solid.
