There is a rustic Pub, Fish & Chinese eatery and nice Coffee cafe within 300 metres. A Baker and pizza takeaways and Spa Supermarket within 3 kms. The island population is only around 3200 people - many being artists, potters, keen organic gardeners, musicians, golfers, fishermen/boaties and retirees. There are two supermarkets, a chemist, dentist, Doctors and ambulance nearby. Macleay Island is one of the four Southern Moreton Bay Islands set within the Moreton Bay Marine Park. These Islands are NOT a 'shopaholic's' paradise - but somewhere to escape from all that!! Take our bikes by free passenger ferry on frequently scheduled commuter trips between all the islands and explore our unspoiled environment. See Dugong, dolphin, and many species of turtle and meet our unpretentious friendly Bay Islanders! Please note that we are set on Moreton Bay, a tidal Bay with no surfing beaches. This Southern part of the bay is mostly tranquil, beautiful, safe boating, fishing, bathing and excellent for crabbing. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: REDLANDCITYCOUNCILFP001113More

About the neighbourhood
The Southern Moreton Bay Islands are less than 36kms from Central Brisbane in 'Sunny Queensland' and less than 38 kms from Brisbane International Airport. There are public transport Buses and trains servicing Redland Bay, often via Cleveland. All the frequently scheduled boat transport, both passenger Ferries and Vehicular Barges leave from Redland Bay for these islands The Gold Coast and Surfers Paradise is only 66kms South on a good freeway and there are frequent train services from Brisbane to the populated beaches of the Gold Coast and all its (nearer) attractions, such as Sea World, Dream World, MGM Movie Studios etc. The New South Wales border is only a few kilometres South of the Gold Coast at Coolangatta.
Getting around
The island is only 6.5kms long and under 2 kms wide. The undulating terrain is mainly covered in tall trees and bush. Much of the pretty coastline can be explored on foot and the wide footpaths on the 1 main road is also a cycle way (give way to pedestrians). Helmets must be worn. There is no public transport on the islands, but taxis operate until 8pm. We provide a courtesy People Mover, and the Golf Club and Club Macleay (RSL/Bowls Club) also provide courtesy busses to from their sporting venues and Bistro dining. Free Interisland transport is provided by the passenger ferries, for bikes and passengers, so exploring other islands on our bikes is popular. Our Canadian 3 person canoe is used to explore our sheltered Bay.
