The aboriginies named Coochiemudlo,
(Kutchimudlo) meaning RED ROCK,
not only because of the rich, volcanic,
red soil found here, but also because
of the huge “Red Rock”
found on the south-west side

Coochiemudlo was used for farming in the early 1890s
The island was filled with custard apple orchards, banana plantations and other various edible and native vegetation. There also use to be cattle farms on Coochie as well as great fishing!
It's been reported, the cattle farmers on occasion, would herd and walk their cattle to the mainland, across the shallow waters of Moreton Bay during low tide .
Coochiemudlo became popular with tourists
in the early 1940s
“The Miramar" use to transport day visitors from
the Bay Islands on the week ends.
Over 30 years ago the island had only a sprinkling of little holiday shacks, with a barge service only operating once every two weeks.
Now Coochie has many holiday homes as well as full-time residents who commute daily to work on the regular half hour ferry service.
Today, Coochie is more popular than ever, mainly because
of its magical old fashioned charm.
Coochie has a very quietsleepy little
village feel to it, with welcoming sandy beaches, calming
blue waters and its untouched natural beauty that still shines!
