Club Macleay - Bowls Club

Club Macleay started modestly in the Island’s Progress Hall in 1968. Thanks to the efforts of its members and assistance from Redland Shire (now City) Council, a clubhouse was built on the north-western foreshore in 1986. It has been extended and improved many times since and throughout has served as the Southern Moreton Bay Islands’ premier dining and entertainment venue with a strong community focus.
