I just loved Moreton and cant wait to travel there again. Moreton Island Adventures handled all my accomodation and Passes and can only recommend them to anyone. Travelling around on the beaches was new to me being from Melbourne and I loved it.

Moreton island is beautiful, around low tide you can find starfish everywhere! At one point in my stay, dolphins swam past me in the water.

We took a tour with sunrover (10 people maximum) and it was a lovely tour!! Highly recommend over the big tour that followed us all day. Sandboarding was exciting and safe. Water was heavenly.

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
