This is a beautiful island. The water is Crystal clear with so many fish and so much marine life. Type in Moreton Island to youtube and you'll see what I mean. The sand is white and squeaks under your feet. The kids had a ball on the beach and exploring the island they took some fantastic photos too. We took... More

We only went over there for a day trip to feed the dolphins, it was such a wonderful day. Had some lunch before going off on two quad bike tours which were fantastic and then back for a couple more drinks before the night fell and the dolphins arrived. Lining up on the beach waiting for your turn with these... More

Moreton is the place for adventurous activities. I took part in snorkelling along the Tangalooma wrecks and sandboarding in the desert. I also got to swim in the Blue Lagoon. The snorkelling is a great experience as the artificial reef provides relatively calm waters and they are very clear meaning you can see the varied water creatures. Sandboarding is quite... More

Excellent day trip from the port if Brisbane. We went with mi cat ferry company as day trippers. (Hint-you don't have to pay for parking , you can park just outside the departure area on the side of the road). Got to the beautiful island right beside the wrecks. The only thing I'd say is, the wrecks are amazing to... More

We stayed in a villa at Tangalooma resort. The villa had plenty of equipment and enough crockery and cutlery for eight people. The view from the veranda was superb. What a pleasant way to wake up in the morning.

We have camped Moreton for 15+ years and always have a great time. The sound of the surf and wind all day and smell of the camp fire at night along with a nice glass of red and good conversation. Nothing better to sooth the soul.

If you want to spend a day on the beach, Moreton Island has lovely scenery (though you can get that along most of the coast without paying for the ferry). I absolutely do not recommend booking a package tour!! When the tours say "Desert Safari in 4WD" they mean that huge buses (that happen to be 4WD- not actual 4WD... More

This was my second trip to Moreton Island and Tangalooma Resort and this trip was much better than the first. This time, I spent only a day rather than staying so I can't comment on the accommodation. This time, the water was clear rather than muddy and it was not so crowded. Last time I was there, it was a... More
