The view looks to Budds Beach and Narrow Neck from Bundall and shows the original Ferry Road to the ferry crossing, through to Cavill Avenue. This was prior to any development taking place on Chevron Island. Clearing and dredging work has been completed to create the western channel between Bundall and Chevron Island.

Chevron Island is a natural island formerly known as Goat Island. It was a cattle station linked to Evandale until the 1950s. It is believed that the name Goat Island comes from the time when the original station had a large goat population to help keep the hardier vegetation from taking over.

Chevron Island also had a jetty for the ferry crossing of the Nerang River to Cavill Avenue. Prior to reclamation, the Nerang River was wide and shallow with many sandbars and shifting banks. Dredging created deeper channels for navigation in the river and the spoil was used to create habitable islands and permanent river embankments, facilitating residential and commercial development.

Polish-born developer Stanley (Shaja) Korman (1904 – 1988) had an ambitious project, his companies, Stanhill Corporation and the Chevron Group acquired extensive parcels of land surrounding the hotel site, including Wedgewood Island and Goat Island, which Korman renamed Paradise Island and Chevron Island respectively.

Through extensive re-contouring using sand pumping techniques, Chevron Island would become another testament to Korman’s enduring legacy.
