"A great place to be..."

Russell Island is great for anyone wanting to wind down and enjoy a simplified lifestyle. It has a coastal country town feel, the people are friendly and all the necessary services are in place. A very relaxing 20 minute trip on the ferry takes you to Redland Bay with easy acess to major shopping facitilties and good public transport.
The air is clean, the sky is clear, the grass is green and the water tastes good. We have lots of conservation areas for the nature lovers and our marine life is fantastic. Great fishing and boating in sheltered waters with offshore acess through 2 bars.
It is a good spot for the family, the retiree and anybody else looking to escape the rat race. Realestate is very affordable and people who are unable to enter the market in other areas quite often achieve thier dream here.
Come for a day or weekend and you will find it hard to leave. It is a top spot in Australia.
