Russell Island Real Estate was established in 1973 when the Qld State Government sub divided the rural land into residential blocks.  The island has had a chequered history, over the years when the first developers sold one block of land and gave the second block free.  These free block were later found to be affected by tidal water.

Redland City Council over the years has rezoned the island and established a large number of conservation areas which, instead of allowing mass building, has kept the residential area to pockets with green belts throughout the island.


The current owners of Russell Island Real Estate, Bevan & Wendy Dorrington have lived on the island for 15 years where they have built their home. In 2004 they bought the local cafe Aunty Alice’s where they both worked until buying Russell Island Real Estate.

Wendy first sold real estate on Russell island in 2001 and over the years has written a book “The  Pioneers of Russell Island”, established (along with Work for the Dole)  Mrs Fischer’s memorial garden and was instrumental in setting up the Southern Moreton Bay Museum.

Bevan ran Aunty Alice’s Restaurant when Wendy commenced her position as Property Manager at Russell Island Real Estate in 2009.


In April 2011 Russell Island Real Estate Changed ownership and Bevan & Wendy have established themselves in the Real Estate Market Place.  Russell Island Real Estate hold the  largest property management portfolio and as you can see by our comprehensive web site are establishing themselves as No 1 in sales within the Russell Island Real Estate Market.
