We love Moreton! Arriving on a gorgeous day and driving down the beach with the sun shining is a wonderful feeling! Spying dolphins playing just offshore is always an added bonus! Exploring this wonderful place always throws up something new and different - even with old favourite places like the Bulwer wrecks are different depending on weather and tide. Sundowners... More

We've travelled the world. Pretty much the only place we haven't been to is Antarctica. While staying with family on a holiday in Brisbane, they lent us their boat for us to explore Moreton Bay. We headed for Moreton Island, intending to stay for one night. We ended up staying for three nights it was so INCREDIBLE. We only returned... More

If you are looking for crystal clear waters and lovely long walks on the beach, look no further. Moreton is one of the best beaches I have been to. Water temps are awesome as well all year around and a great alternative to the crashing waves of surfers paradise.

Feels like you are a million miles from anything. Lush tropical paradise without any roads. Crystal clear water as well!

Unbelievable how large this island is and untouched 98%. Loved every bit of it and specially the sea around it, the marine life in it, the desert & sand on it and the endless possibilities of activities that it offers, something for everyone.

We will be back again, we set up camp on the Eastern Beach about 3ks south of Middle Road. It has many places to see on the Island, its a good walk to the top of Mount Tempest, the views from up there make the walk well worth it.

Have been to the island a couple of times. I find the stores and cafes a bit camp and overpriced, but the scenery and time with dolphins etc to make this a memorable experience. People are very nice there.

Went here as part of a cruise, stunning island, beautiful beaches, sparkling blue clear water which was so inviting. Found tours a bit over priced, food was average the price was a bit high for it. Lots of water stations which was fantastic on a very hot day. One bad point my daughter cut her toe open and we couldn't... More
