Wellington Point

Wellington Point, a suburb on Moreton Bay, is 21 km east of central Brisbane. It was named by the colonial surveyor James Warner, probably as a compliment to the Duke of Wellington. The point is a slender, northwards promontory with picnic facilities and a sailing club at its end.
