Who could believe that it is only one hour from a capital city? It is so unspoilt, the water and beaches are so clean. Dolphin Wild Cruises are a great way to see some of the island in one day. Snorkelling around the wrecks is great fun and climbing the giant sand dunes a great way to get some serious... More

A very relaxing holiday. Great weather, fantastic service and wonderful accommodation. Easy to get to from the mainland.

This car/passenger is the cheapest way to get to Moreton, check out their special offers page for 'barefoot walk on offers'....but please be warned that if you are staying at Tangalooma resort, this ferry stops near the wrecks which is about a 1 km beach walk away from the resort itself. If you are planning to snorkel around the wrecks,... More

We went to Moreton Island via P&O cruise Pacific Jewel in November 2014. Beautiful island but lacking shady spots on the beach so the few trees that were there everyone was huddled under them. Theres helicopter rides, sand dune fun, snorkling etc. Feel the island could have some stalls to shop from instead of one little shop for trinkets souvenirs... More

I absolutely love Moreton Island and thoroughly recommend that if your considering a visit don't hesitate. Just go. I have been there more times than I can remember, as I used to conduct Camping Tours there and no one ever had a bad thing to say about the island. Do your research though as it's a 4wd & camping paradise... More

We went on a 2-day camping trip with Sunrover to Moreton Island. When we arrived, we were packed into a covered Pickup Truck, with benches at the back and a front seat of about 60cm width. The benches were filled with eight customers (each had about 40-45 cm space) and my husband and I shared the front seat beneath the... More

Everything described in the brochure and online is a huge over-exaggeration and highly misleading. The most enthusiastic person in the whole experience was the guy who I spoke with on the phone about booking the tour. Unfortunately most of what he told me was very misleading. We did the one day tour and wish we would have only bought the... More

Obviously not the same choice & quality as the mainland but a pretty good effort all things considered. Not a lot of choice & finer dining options are quite expensive

Had a beautiful day out here on this lovely "island" where the dolphins are fed. Went on the boat from Brisbane on a glorious day. Plenty of history too about the whaling industry.

We have just spent a lovely 4 day weekend on Moreton Island with friends. The island is no where near as busy or developed as Fraser Is. We camped at 'Yellow Patch' campground, (northern end) as it is one of the few that allows a campfire and with this family, a camp fire when camping is pretty much mandatory! There... More
