PL06 Peel’s Lazaret Gutter jetty, looking north to Moreton Island

Little remains today of the former jetty that the leprosy patients had built for themselves with materials supplied by the Health Department. (The rails for the cradle came from the then defunct tramway at the Dunwich Benevolent Asylum). As a relief from the insufferable boredom of life at the lazaret, the patients were allowed to have boats and could stay out fishing for up to three days before the police would be notified to bring them back.
