Afternoon walk


I'd made arrangements to visit the Lamb Island B and B - I like B and B's and have stayed in a few, so I was interested to see what this one was like. It is a separate two bedroomed cottage on the main road - Lucas Drive, with the owner's home behind it.

It overlooks the main road, and from various vantage spots, one can see the sea - either north towards Stradbroke Island, or east to Macleay Island. Well, you get a peek through the trees.

It's a neat little cottage with two bedrooms - one on either side of the bathroom. It is a great spot for a few quiet nights away. No children or pets allowed.

The feature of this B and B is the spa bath - which is very private, though perhaps off putting if you don't realise that it is only one way glass. You can see out - but no one can see in!

There are no restaurants on Lamb Island, but you'll find dining facilities on Russell or Macleay Islands - and your hosts will give you the details. (See post about the Blue Parrot Cafe.) There's no pool on the island - except that at the B and B, you are only a few minutes walk from the swimming enclosure - so you can swim safely in the sea without worrying about sharks.
I'm told the hospitality on a Friday night is exceptional too!

One can have a fully cooked breakfast, and there are cooking facilities for your other meals if you wish to cook. Your hosts are Col and Kay McInnes, and you can phone them on Queensland (07) 3409 4575. E-mail:
