Full Itinerary

Mackay Marina to Eimeo Hotel

The Marina Precinct boasts an array of restaurants, bars and shops, as well as the luxury Clarion Hotel Mackay Marina.

A short stroll from the Marina precinct is Harbour Beach, lush parks with barbecue facilities and a thriving Yacht Club, where on weekends you can join in the fun of social sailing. Harbour Beach is also a favourite fishing spot with the locals who catch jew, mackerel, trevally, bream and tuna here. Picturesque and patrolled Eimeo Beach is popular with locals, beach goers and anglers.

After spending some time at Eimeo Beach, head to the Eimeo Pacific Hotel on the cliff top for a cool drink or meal. Overlooking Eimeo Beach, the Coral Sea and islands, it's known as the pub which serves "lunch with the million-dollar view". Owned by the same family for more than 70 years, patrons have the best views in town overlooking Brampton, Keswick and St Bees islands.

China Wall Dive Site

Moreton Island, Brisbane Area
Located on the exposed eastern side of Brisbane’s Moreton Island, China Wall is an unusual dive site for the area as the reef is dominated by kelp rather than coral. Waving beds of brown kelp are more common in southern Australia and these ones look very out of place with tropical fish swimming around them.

Marietta Dal Shipwreck Dive Site

Moreton Island, Brisbane Area
The Marietta Dal was a 7500 tonne liberty ship built in the USA in 1944 and is one of the most interesting shipwrecks off Brisbane. On May 15 1950, the 140 metre long ship was carrying a cargo of sulphur, oil, tractors and other general cargo when it ran aground on Smith Rock.

Smith Rock Dive Site

Moreton Island, Brisbane Area
Smith Rock is one of the most notorious reefs off Brisbane, as this jagged rocky outcrop has claimed three ships over the years. Located off the eastern side of Moreton Island, Smith Rock is also a wonderful dive site, but is often overlooked as it is a tricky site to anchor on.

Hutchinson Shoal Dive Site

Moreton Island, Brisbane Area
Hutchinson Shoal is the largest reef system off Brisbane and also one of the least dived. Located north of Moreton Island, Hutchinson Shoal is washed by strong currents and offers no protection in rough weather.

Tangalooma Dolphin Feeding

Moreton Island, Brisbane Area
Moreton Bay is home to approximately 600 bottlenose dolphins and each evening as the sun begins to set across the water, a small pod makes their way to the shores of Tangalooma Island Resort. Since 1992, resort guests have had the opportunity to hand feed the dolphins as part of the Tangalooma wild dolphin feeding program.

Tangalooma Wrecks Dive Site

Moreton Island, Brisbane Area
Free Entry

Henderson Rock Dive Site

Moreton Island, Brisbane Area
Free Entry

Roberts Shoal Dive Site

Moreton Island, Brisbane Area
Roberts Shoal is located off the eastern side of Moreton Island and is another Brisbane dive site that is often overlooked. This rocky reef can only be dived when conditions are calm, with winter generally the best time to experience this brilliant dive site.

Moreton Island, Brisbane Area
Free Entry
