Russell Island Name Change Announcement


ADVERTISEMENT
As a result of submissions provided by the public, the decision was to not proceed with the proposal to dual name Russell Island as Russell Island/Canaipa Island. Instead of changing the name of the island, the decision is to recognise Canaipa as an alternative name for the island.

Canaipa will be recorded and published as the alternative name for Russell Island in the Queensland Place Names database and on departmental maps.
