Moreton Island

No island in Moreton Bay says 'fun' more than Moreton.

Located in the northern part of the bay, you only need to take a short boat trip from Scarborough or Manly to discover the island's long list of bragging rights.

As one of the world's largest sand islands, adrenaline seekers flock to Moreton for the unique experience of sand tobogganing down the world's tallest stabilised sand dune, Mt Tempest. Guided tours are available along with all the equipment you'll need for a headfirst, high-speed trip down the dune. Tangalooma Island Resort also offers quad-biking tours around the island - their fleet of bikes is one of the largest in the country.

With mysterious shipwrecks and colourful coral reefs, the famous Tangalooma Wrecks provide some of the best diving and snorkelling on the east coast of Australia. The island's idyllic waters are primed for all manner of aquatic pursuits including swimming and surfing, which also happen to be world class on Moreton Island.

Moreton is almost entirely National Park, making it an excellent destination for nature lovers. Tangalooma Island Resort is renowned as one of only a handful of places on the planet where you can hand feed dolphins in the wild. Towards the northern end of the island, the freshwater Blue Lagoon is home to a host of birdlife and wildflowers during spring. The area is perfect for bird watching and bushwalking, with several walking tracks established on the island.

And let's not forget the oldest lighthouse in Queensland, which was first lit on February 14, 1857 and is still standing strong at Cape Moreton. All this is packed onto an island paradise located right on Brisbane's doorstep.
