After morning pickup in Brisbane, transfer to the ferry that takes you across Moreton Bay. When you arrive at Moreton Island, travel by 4-wheel drive (4WD) vehicle to the beach and along Middle Road.
Moreton Island is the world's third largest sand island. Most of the island is a protected national park without paved roads, making 4WD an essential mode of transportation.
Admire the scenery as you pass eucalyptus forests with some trees that are 250 years old. Head to 'the Desert’ for a classic sandboarding experience on Moreton Island.
When sandboarding, you can reach speeds of up to (50 km) per hour. Despite the potential for speed, everyone from beginners to speed demons can enjoy the activity and modify it to their comfort level.
After the sandboarding excitement, head to a lake where you can take a dip in the blue waters or relax on a white-sand beach while your guide serves up a tasty picnic lunch. Then head to the Tangalooma Shipwrecks for a guided snorkel tour around the 15 submerged shipwrecks. The wrecks are located only (50 meters) from the beach, making them easy to reach. Enjoy watching a range of aquatic life swim around the vicinity, including parrotfish, trevally, blue-tang surgeonfish (dory) and clown fish.
Alternatively, take a kayak tour in the area of the Tangalooma Shipwrecks, observing the shipwrecks from above.
Please note: Snorkeling is subject to tide and weather conditions and may change without notice. Kayaking may be offered as an alternative to snorkeling if conditions are unfavorable.
At the end of a full day, enjoy the sunset over Moreton Bay as you return by ferry to the mainland and transfer back to Brisbane where your tour ends.
Please note: The itinerary may change depending on weather and tidal conditions.
