Coochiemudlo Island

Coochiemudlo Island is a small island in the southern part of Moreton Bay, near Brisbane, in South East Queensland, Australia. It is also the name of the locality upon the island, which is within the local government area of Redland City.

Two couples went by ferry to the island to have lunch and some time to walk around. The couples were Ken and Harriet Aitken and Rob and Lyn Spence. We went over on the 6th of September 2021. It was a very simple and relaxed time.

In Australia, we are in the Spring season. Summer begins in December. The Spring season in Queensland is very mild a great for going out. This why we all went to Coochiemudlo Island in September.

Here are some photos of our time:
