A piece of paradise!

Moreton Island is incredible! The crystal clear water in Tangalooma is perfect for swimming and snorkeling. I had an awesome time with my friends in the island.

Gorgeous place, beautiful beaches, dolphins swimming in the waves. Eating and entertaining yourself on the island is costly although beautiful.

This is a place where you can be as busy or as "relaxed" as you want. Plenty of activities for the more adventurous and reasonably priced. The wild dolphin feeding off the jetty at sunset is a great experience although can be very busy.

It was a good campsite near Blue Lagoon (it has cold shower + toilet facilities). We didn't swim in Ocean near campsite because there were a lot of blue bottles jellyfish. Instead, we were driving to Champaign Pool and swim there. There were Honeymoon Bay, which was full of blue bottles, but on the other site was the clean area....... More

So close to Brisbane with daily ferries over, one can enjoy this as either a day trip or for bit longer. There is nothing fake about this place. Excellent beaches, the only place where I can actually catch a fish, accommodation to suit all budget. There is so much you can do here without spending much! Or have a luxurious... More

We spent three days at Tangalooma resort on this island which boasts only 70 residents year round! It is a National Park and very few roads exist other than sand paths. Many people bring jeeps over by ferry and camp to enjoy raw nature. We took challenging bush hikes and some of our group also rented ATVs to experience the... More
