Peel Island - Peter Ludlow (1.5mb pdf). Peter Ludlow details life on Peel Island and how it became a home for Moreton Bay's outcasts.

Ships in quarantine at Peel Island 1873-1896. Contains names of those who died onboard during this very dark period in our history. Thanks to Peter for permission to include on our website. More historical information on Moreton Bay Islands can be found on Peter's website here
