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

A great "tropical" island experience on Brisbane's doorstep! Great ocean side beach and an even better bay side beach! Beautiful! We saw a dugong, dolphin and a turtle just as we were sitting in the bay side beach.

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.
