Brisbane Water Airport (Redland Bay)

 

The terminal or landing location for the Flying Boat Base was near Banana Street at Redland Bay. It is believed that this Flying Boat Base was established after WWII. Sunderland Flying Boats were the main aircraft to land in Redland Bay. During the war the flying boats would mainly use the Hamilton reach of the Brisbane River.

The last Flying Boat used the Redland Bay Flying Boat Base in 1971.

So called "WW2 Shed" located on Salisbury Street at Redland Bay
located on the grounds of the Queensland University Farm

 

In June 2005, the Queensland University Farm was scheduled to be developed in about 12 months into a Retirement Village by Petrac, a developer. The pump located in the shed, will be part of a display that is to be located in the old Queenslander house located on the farm. It will become a Community Centre for the village after the house is renovated. The future of the pump shed itself is unclear.
