Discover the hidden secrets of Moreton Island National Park on this small-group, fully-guided 3-day adventure tour with a local guide. This tour is designed to show you the most of Moreton Island National Park and its flora, fauna, history, indigenous culture and geology. Tall sand dunes, miles of sandy beaches, crystal clear creeks and lagoons, coastal heath, rocky headlands and abundant wildflowers make Moreton Island a jewel in South East Queensland.
This experience includes two nights camping in shared tents, transport in custom-built 4WD vehicles, as well as freshly prepared meals to fill you up and maintain your energy levels for all the fun.
Depart Brisbane for a unique beach wilderness experience on Moreton Island, with pickups from multiple locations around Brisbane, as well as Hamilton and Redcliffe. You'll board the ferry for the cruise across Moreton Bay, arriving on Moreton Island’s white sandy beaches.
Travel by 4WD to a remote surf beach before taking a short forest walk to the fresh waters of Blue Lagoon. This magical lake is filled from the underground water table and is 42 hectares in size. It's ideal for an invigorating swim, as the calm, shallow waters are endlessly inviting, while the sandy beach is perfect for laying back for a sunbake. Bird lovers will also enjoy the opportunity to spot some winged friends.
Having worked up an appetite, enjoy a delicious picnic lunch with cold drinks overlooking the surf beach.
With full tummies, it's time to move on to Cape Moreton Lighthouse for excellent land-based whale watching (during migration season) as well as spotting dolphins, turtles, sharks and Manta Rays. Next up is the hidden gem of Honeymoon Bay, a small, secluded beach that's incredibly picturesque. Further along the headland is the Champagne Pools, where the waves crash over the volcanic rocks, creating a natural bubble bath effect. It's a great spot to try out bodyboarding or enjoy a swim.
Finally, it's time to head back to the camp to settle in for the evening. After a healthy evening meal, enjoy stories around the campfire, stargaze at the lake or stroll along Ben Ewa Bay Beach.
Start the day just right with a tropical breakfast overlooking the ocean. Then, travel the beach to the big sand hills for some sandboarding action. It's the ultimate thrill on Moreton Island, as you'll fly down the hills at top speed!
Indulge in an outdoor morning tea before moving on to the famous Tangalooma Shipwrecks. These are a series of 15 ships scuttled off the island's coast to create a safe harbour for boats and an artificial reef. Snorkel among the colourful tropical fish and kayak around, looking for dugongs, dolphins, and turtles before a fresh picnic lunch.
After lunch, enjoy some free time to relax on Tangalooma beach, playing beach games, sunbaking, or taking another refreshing dip in the crystal clear waters. You can also take a beach drive to Cowan Point Lookout or onto the Bulwer Shipwrecks towards the island's northern end.
Then, spend another night camping, with dinner by the fire and more opportunities to relax with your new friends, tell stories, or gaze at the stars.
As you rise on the last day of your island adventure, you'll indulge in one last breakfast. Then, with a packed picnic lunch, beach drive to Mount Tempest – the highest sand hill in the world to marvel at the incredible views, before continuing south along the beach to the biggest of Moreton’s sandhills.
Take a 4WD journey to the southern wetland eelgrass fields, which is home to many dugongs and turtles, as well as protected bird rookeries and migratory waders. Your eco guide will also explain the Aboriginal midden sites and ancient campfire areas.
This is the perfect, relaxing way to end the day before the final journey back to Brisbane.
