Camping near Russell Island guide

Overview

Less than an hour from Brisbane CBD, Russell Island has everything you need for a relaxing island getaway—sandy beaches, glorious sunsets, and plenty of wildlife-watching opportunities. Take your campervan or caravan on the car ferry or hop aboard a water taxi from Redland Bay, and you’ll be on the island within half an hour, ready to hit the beach, go fishing, or swim in the warm waters of Moreton Bay. Join a boat cruise or rent a boat or kayak and go island-hopping between the five islands of Southern Moreton Bay Islands National Park, or explore the coastal wetlands of Russell Island, where you can spot turtles and a wide variety of birdlife. Campers have options on the island, too. Book a powered site at the caravan park, rent a cabin close to the coast, or snag a spot at the council-run campground on the south shore.
