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

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
