Russell | Canaipa Island, 28 September 2022 

Russell Island Recreation Hall, QLD, Quandamooka Country

Russell Island Recreation Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Quandamooka People.

The Russell Island Recreation Hall is likely the first building you’ll see when you jump off the ferry! The Russell Island Recreation Hall is just a hop, skip and a jump up the hill after our local deckhands and skippers have wished you well on your departure. Once inside, you’ll have a great view of our neighbouring island Karragarra which you may have already passed on your trip over. All depends if you went “around the world” or the direct service. Russell Island was once a major supplier for fruit and veggies to Brisbane. Avocados, mangoes, lychees and jack fruit trees are scattered across the islands, the farmsteads are long gone so the trees are the only remains of our rich farming history.
