Good place to spent a week camping or even a weekend....have a camp fire and a glass of red.... That is assuming that one have well over $200 to spare to ferry yourselves and your 4WD and NP access.

Travelling to Moreton Island can be accomplished by a relatively short (40 minute) boat, ferry or barge trip from Bribie Island, Scarborough or Brisbane.

If you visit Moreton Island Make sure to dive or snorkel thee wrecks. The ferry pulls up very close to them. The resort offers tours which are very good. If you snorkel or dive make sure you hit it on slake tide otherwise it can be very dangerous and hard to swim back to shore. You will have 25-40 minutes... More

But be aware .....we had our number plate on the front of our vehicle stolen while we where sand tobogganing at the Dunes. We have photos of the vehicle before we went tobogganing with the kids in front and it was there when... More
