Jetty at Russell Island

Russell Island Jetty

http://moretonbay.biz/part-4-russell-island

The first settlers on the island relied on their own resources to take themselves and their produce to market. The area to the east of the current jetty was the site of the rafting ground, where the timber-getters would form log rafts to float their timber to sawmills on the mainland. The island’s early farmers also used this area to ship their produce before jetties were built.

The jetty accesses Krummel Passage. This passage was formerly known as the Mersen or Marsden Channel, named after Christian Mersen, who selected a couple of parcels of land on Russell Island in the 1870s. He set up a lime burning kiln where he burnt local coral and oysters. This kiln was close to the lime burners’ jetty near the present water transport office and current jetty.

Many people find they need to commute from the island to the mainland for their career choice. This commuting is usually by a ferry, which can take between 20 mins to half an hour on most days. The ferries run regularly – timetables and prices, also vehicle barges run throughout the day.
