|Coochiemudlo Island is located within the Redland Shire in South-East Queensland, between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. The island lies in Moreton Bay, where it’s shallow beaches and mangroves are protected from the breakers of the South Pacific. The island is easily reached by a short ferry trip from Victoria Point. Although Coochie, as the island is known locally, is only 5 square kilometres in size, it boasts more than 4 Km of beautiful safe beaches, which are ideal for the kids. It has been called : ‘the jewel of Moreton Bay’. The name ‘Coochiemudlo’ refers to the red rock pictured above. This dominant feature makes the island easily recogniseable when seen from the mainland. Inspite of ‘mud’ appearing in the name, there is only a little mangrove – the rest is beach.If you decide you would like to stay a little longer, there is a motel which offers reasonable rates, and lots of private accommodation which can be let to holidaymakers.
