An island for every day of the year.
It is said that there are 365 islands in Moreton Bay - one for every day of the year. Some of the "islands" are little more than sand atolls that are only visible at low tide.
Three are quite a few islands visible from the Wynnum Manly area, the larger Moreton and North Stradbroke Islands in the distance, and St Helena, and Green quite close to the shore, and over at the sound end of Waterloo Bay is King Island. King Island is attached to the mainland by a sand spit. At low tide it is a popular walk - one just has to remember to make the return journey before the tide comes in.
