In “Moreton Bay Reflections” Peter – and many others – reflect on such diverse aspects of Moreton Bay as its ‘lost’ areas of Bishop and Cribb Islands; the American Armed Services ‘invasion’ during World War II; the mystery graves on Peel and Mud Islands; an Aborigines’ life on Stradbroke; the past tourist rivalry of Cleveland and Sandgate; a pioneer’s life on Russell and Karragarra Islands; the importance of seagrass; what Moreton Bay is worth today; and much more.
