Amazing experience! Day Trip included Sandboarding in the Desert, Kayaking on clear-bottom kayaks, and snorkelling around shipwrecks. Our Tour Guide Andrew was awesome, super funny and knowledgable. Great trip! Worth the price!

Me and my three girlfriends were a bit nervous about camping a night in Australia since none of us were much of the outdoorsy type, however it turned out to be our favorite night of the trip! Our tour guide Rhendon was great (if you have the chance try to schedule with him) and made awesome dinners. He really made... More

We stayed at the Tangalooma Island Resort with all it has to offer but decided to take the 4WD across on the Barge as well. We were so happy we did so. The Island has a lot to offer but you need the 4WD to get around. The highlight for the family was watching whales from the Lighthouse outlook, tobogganing... More

We came here recently as a slight detour from our original destination of Mooloolaba. It ended up to be a great day. Lots of snorkelling and relaxing on the beach with a nice lunch at the resort. There was plenty of options of activities.

Spent just a day on the island. Seen quite a bit, very much looking forward to going back to explore more. My opinion is that it's better than Fraser Island.

I cannot recommend Moreton island enough. We first came on a day trip and then decided to come with friends (Four adults and two 11 month olds) for a long weekend camping, staying at the Ben-Ewa camp ground. Moreton island is stunning with much on offer - the wrecks snorkelling is gorgeous on a clear day / the lighthouse has... More

An easy ferry ride from Brisbane, 4WD essential! Get out and explore the whole island! Enjoy spectacular views including unbeatable 360 degree views from the lighthouse, climb the sand dunes, snorkel or dive on the wrecks, swim in the freshwater lake, and revel in having a whole beach to yourself without another soul in sight! Basic but beautiful camp sites... More

All staff were extremely welcoming and helpful, even though they were dealing with a large number of people at once. Nothing was too hard for them. A beautiful island with so much to see and do
