hoping to move to the island

Hi ..I currently live in brisbane. .just myself, my dog charlie and maybe my cat serendipity... I prefer a rural area..someone recommended I check out Russell Island. I've been doing the research...but would really appreciate some advice from locals. I read that there is an issue with parking at the ferry on the island. .can you please tell me why people need to park there... I will be catching the ferry back to mainland 3 - 4 days a week so I'm curious as to what the problem is when returning from mainland. I know I sound like an absolute twit..sorry.

People need to park there/at the Russell Island ferry terminal, as you need a car here, as no public transport OR use the Little Bus service OR the taxi service here to get down to the ferry terminal and back home each day when you need to travel. I don't know about any problems with parking at the Russell Is ferry terminal, there seems to be enough parking, 2 or 3 large parking areas, but perhaps not enough, don't know, as I live on another island. Parking at Redland Bay ferry terminal seems to be more of an issue, although they have just built more parking, but you will need to walk a little to it, very busy parking wise at the ferry terminal. Secure lock up area there, but a long waiting list, maybe a couple of years, to get one and then you have to pay for it. Also private houses nearby where you can pay to park in their yards also. I personally get public transport, available right at the door of the terminal. Some people who work on the mainland do catch public transport. I personally don't mind being a little bit inconvenienced to help save the environment and not have to deal with car repairs, petrol and all that hassle I had when we lived on the mainland. A personal choice I guess. Hope this helps
