Our list of things to See & Do

Everyone claims to live in the best place, we know that. But here’s a little something extra that sets The Redlands region apart from the rest. If you’ve ever wanted to try island life, you have a number of options within easy reach of Cleveland, Victoria Point or Redland Bay. These coastal suburbs have excellent boat ramp facilities or access to high speed water taxis and more leisurely vehicular ferries. And that puts the majority of island locations within 25 mins reach! The smaller islands of Coochiemudlo, Russell, Macleay, Lamb and Karragarra can all be accessed easily, some with greater infrastructure than others. You can find out more about the island’s history and living options in our full article.
