The smallest of the inhabited bay islands, Karragarra is a quiet
spot with no shops, so if you go there, be sure to bring a picnic.
There are plenty of sandy beaches, palm trees, pine trees, mangroves
and rainforest areas, not to mention parks, picnic spots and plenty of
places to swim. It was once called Rabbit Island.
Island hopping is an easy option amongst these Southern Moreton Bay
Islands due to the regular water ferries which transport people from
island to island. Macleay Island is the closest one to Karragarra and
has shops, the popular “Blue Parrot Restaurant” and the
famous Bowls Club with the most spectacular view and a courtesy bus to
collect and return you to the ferry. Russell Island is the largest of
the Moreton Bay Islands and therefore has many businesses including a
supermarket, clubs, hardware, café, doctor, taxi service,
chemist and many more.
