Moreton Island, with its inverted triangle shape, covers 186 km2 (45,962 acres). The Cape Mortern at north eastern tip of the island was named Cape Morton by Captain James Cook in May 1770,... More

We visited Moreton Island as part of a P&O cruise. What a glorious day we had. Moreton Island is as good as any of the Whitsunday / Pacific Islands. Tangalooma Resort is well-appointed with great service and a very welcome icy-cold beer! We booked a para-sailing adventure and I would highly recommend it. Not at all the scary event I... More

We went on a 4 day P&O cruise from Sydney to Morton Island and had a 1 day stop over on the Island. We only had a few hours on The island as the ship had trouble lowering the ramps to the shuttle boats transport us onto the island. Once on the island we had lunch as it was now... More

If you want to get away from the rat race of life then if you are near Brisbane (Australia) then I would recommend a trip over to the paradise of Moreton Island. We were lucky to have relatives who had a place to let us stay at just set back from the beach. You'll need a 4x4 vehicle as there... More

We sailed to Moreton and moored there for New Years and it was fantastic! Beautiful for snorkelling, rowing or swimming and soaking up the sun!

We went here to relax for a few days away from the hustle-and-bustle of Brisbane. There are a lot of activities provided by resorts, but we preferred to sit or lay down on the grass or sand and read, chat or snooze. Compared to just going up or down the coast, there was some psychological benefit to leaving the mainland... More

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
