Our Redlands

Redland City is working on a project that looks at the area’s identity and how we present ourselves – this is known as ‘place branding’.

The project is about capturing the essence of our identity, not changing it, to help us better communicate why the Redlands is a great place to live, work, and play.

Next Steps

Over 4,800 Redland residents and businesses have provided input into the project so far through survey's, consultations and workshops.

We are capturing all the details and working on the final touches of the new identity.

Sign-up to stay informed and stay tuned in 2018 for updates on how the project will progress.

Thanks to everyone for being involved and having your say.

  • MY ENVIRONMENTAL GROWTH TOGETHER WITH THE BEAUTIFUL REDLANDS

    by barbarabradford, 5 months ago

    As a young 7 yo child from a family of 8, we lived on a small property at Belmont and we would regularly travel to the Redlands for picnics and swimming at many places including Tingalpa Creek Capalaba (near the Greyhound grounds), Wellington Point and Thompsons Beach Victoria Point.

    The drives through the Redlands with all the farms growing vegetables from the rich soils were what I remembered the most from those early years of the Redlands at that time. 

    These areas included farms at Wellington Point, Ormiston, Cleveland, Victoria Point, Redland Bay, the strawberry farms were... Continue reading

  • Beautiful Like An Animal

    by Natalie S, 5 months ago

    The house was on the corner. A dead motorbike bike swung on a cable from the tree out the front. There was a six foot high timber fence that ran around the property. A rope thick as an anaconda hung in loops across the top.

    When I walked past, links of chain clanked and a dog crashed towards me. It barked like it was insane. Its face slathered, all teeth and red gums, in the gaps between the fence posts. A pit-bull.

    I would stand on the block that might become my block and touch the rough trunk of the... Continue reading

  • Avian Paradise

    by jodicksondesigns, 5 months ago
    20170825 163947

    As the barge ploughed through the dark waters of Moreton Bay I noticed a great deal of avian activity.  A flock of opportunistic seagulls scanned the turbulent froth of the boat's wake for prey.  The sun was horizon-bound and underlit their wings with gold.  A white-bellied sea eagle soared effortlessly on improbably large wings, clearly master of its domain. The beacons in that part of the route known as The W's were resting posts for cormorants, done with drying their sodden wings.  Soon the islands began to lose detail, turning to silhouette as we approached our destination. What a perfect... Continue reading

  • Can You Believe We Live Here??

    by arthurechlin, 5 months ago

    We have only lived in the Redlands for almost three years, after stumbling across it when looking for options when moving from a capital city. 

    Every time we go for a walk to peaceful Thompson's Beach we still find ourselves saying, "Can you believe we live here??"

    Every time we ride our bikes with our three kids along picturesque Pt O'Halloran we still find ourselves saying, "Can you believe we live here??"

    Every time we take our boat out from Cleveland and have a picnic at Raby Bay foreshore we still find ourselves saying, "Can you believe we live here??"

    ... Continue reading

  • Dear Kate...

    by elizashepherd, 5 months ago

    Dear Kate,

    In your last letter you asked about where I live now and what it’s like to live in Victoria Point in the beautiful sunshine state of Queensland. In this letter I’ll tell you all about it. It has been 3 months since we moved here from Melbourne, so we are still adjusting and it seriously feels like we live in a different country sometimes. It’s always sunny with blue skies and summer felt extremely hot for me - I couldn't seem to stop sweating.

    We get to spend most of our day in the pool or down at... Continue reading

  • My Home The Redlands

    by Cathy, 5 months ago

    I have lived in the Redlands since day dot, before traffic lights and round-a-bouts. Where it was Redland Bay Road to where, as you couldn't find a street sign and there were no street lights and so at night it was pitch black. I would wake up to kangaroo's under the hills hoist clothes line, and we could pat the koala on the chook pen fence. When friends and family came to visit us we were known as living out in the sticks miles from nowhere. 

    The Redlands was known as the Salad Bowl back then as we had lots... Continue reading

  • Our Redlands Adventure

    by Jademichele, 5 months ago

    11 years ago we came to Redland City to visit family. They have lived here now for 37 years.

    For us as a family, it was time to think outside the box and have a change.

    We decided to sell everything and become full-time housesitters for the residents of Redlands.

    It has been the most amazing experience and while not without it's challenges, we have met the most wonderful people and taken care of so many fur family members.

    Having lived in Redland Bay, Mount Cotton, Thorneside, Thornlands, Wellington Point and Alexandra Hills, it has given us the opportunity to... Continue reading

  • My Island Home - North Stradbroke Island

    by samanthabongiorno, 5 months ago
    Image1

    North Stradbroke Island is many things to me, my wildlife retreat, my family oasis, my place of rejuvenation. It's the only place in the world where I feel truly at home.

    Many people visit North Stradbroke Island but only some are lucky enough to call it home. My family are some of the lucky ones.

    From the moment I arrived on Straddie, in my late teens, I knew it was my forever home and would be a remarkable place to raise a family. Now, with young children of my own, I watch them grow in an amazing natural playground. Exploring... Continue reading

  • Humpback Dreaming!

    by barefoot dave, 5 months ago

    At the turn of the millennium, I made a life changing decision to retire from a career in the mining industry and start a business introducing visitors to the wonders of North Stradbroke Island.

    North Stradbroke Island has been my home since the mid-1980s. My wife’s family had been raised here, as had their ancestors. Throughout the ages, we have all felt a deep affinity to this uniquely beautiful island.

    In the 17 years since, I have shown thousands of people around most corners of Stradbroke; from whale watchers, to fishermen and kayakers, sand... Continue reading
