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

We visited the island recently. It is beautiful and the snorkelling is amazing. The sunsets are unforgettable! 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

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

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
