Redland City

Redland City (2008) faces Stradbroke Island across Moreton Bay, east and south-east of Brisbane. It was named after Redland Bay, which has fertile reddish soil which comprises much of the area and some small offshore islands. Local Government began with Tingalpa Division (1879) an area of 149 sq miles, from which Cleveland Divisions (28 sq miles) was excised in 1885.
