The lazaret at Peel Island, Moreton Bay

Peel Island, now known as Teerk Roo Ra is in Moreton Bay, east of Brisbane, and is a place of great cultural heritage. It was once home to a lazaret, or leper colony. Today it is a national park and a conservation park, jointly managed by Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service and the island’s traditional owners, the Quandamooka People.
