Situated in Southern Moreton Bay just off Victoria Point and sheltered from rougher seas by North Stradbroke Island / Minjerribah, Coochiemudlo is only a short ferry ride from the mainland. There is something about this little island that makes some people say it’s like stepping back in time. The density of trees, even throughout streets and gardens of the residents, certainly has a lot of charm. It is also an excellent habitat for birds. Rainbow Lorikeets - cheeky residents
For more than three decades I lived in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, until the call of the subtropics saw me relocate to Moreton Bay in South East Queensland in 2012. From the very beginning, this place has been beautiful and story-filled, but it was also undiscovered country for me. So it was the perfect antidote, and an inspiring challenge, when VoiceMap approached me to produce an audio tour for Coochiemudlo Island, right at the geographic centre of this archipelago.
