Lovely place and lots to do if you want to pay. Helicopter rides, segway tours, dolphin/whale watching and very busy if a cruise ship is in for the day.

We did a 1-day tour to Moreton Island. We chose Sunrover because sand boarding and other fun activities like the 4WD were included at a good price. Everything we did was a lot of fun and Kim was a really likable and flexible tour guide. He could tell us plenty of things about the island and made the tour both... More

We did a 1-day tour to Moreton Island with Sunrover, which was a lot of fun! Our tour guide Kim was very committed and responsive to our demands. He was also very knowledgeable about the island and told us a lot about the plants there. As it was winter and very windy, we couldn't go snorkelling, but in return we... More

From the time we were picked up in Surfers, albeit a bit late, we had the most amazing day. The ferry ride from Brisbane port to Moreton Island, snorkelling (wetsuits provided) around the Tangalooma shipwrecks, Kayaking in glass-bottom kayaks, wonderful lunch, 4wheel drive trip to sand boarding spot and finally the ferry back was an awesome , fun-filled, action packed...

Greg A, Public Relations Manager at Moreton Island, responded to this review

Hi John, I am sorry to hear about your average experience on Moreton Island. As most of the other reviews suggest, this is quite unusual for Moreton Island. I have always found the locals very friendly, and they would normally give the shirts off their backs to help out another. There is only 1 very friendly shop on the Island,... More

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.
