We travel here every year, it's a beautiful place, great for families. The resort is undergoing much needed renovations. The views are amazing, the rooms are comfortable with everything you need for a comfortable stay.

We recently spent 4 days in absolute paradise at Tangalooma resort. From our arrival at the wharf to catch the boat to Tangalooma, we all started to relax. The boat trip takes just over an hour and we were accompanied by dolphins riding the waves alongside the boat which was spectacular to watch. We stayed in a beachfront villa with...

And what a view! From the moment the ferry arrived at the shore, we were mesmerised by the beautiful crystal clear water. At Tangaloom/Moreton Island, it is what you make it, truly; you can choose to do nothing, or you can choose to do a lot, it's up to you. I took the relaxing option of a massage, a helicopter...

Wow thanks for such a terrific review jo3113, At Tangalooma we aim to deliver an authentic and traditional aussie beach holiday.

The mail highlights of the island was the 4 shades of water..! The moment you get down of the ferry u are in love with the beauty. Also sand boarding was one of the main attractions, where I had a great time. Dolphin feeding was a good tourist attraction. I would love to go to this place over and over.!

I won a two night stay at the Resort. I upgraded as the prize did not include children. I upgraded from a Hotel Deluxe to a Villa. Very Disappointing. It was like we were back in the 80's. The TV was almost as small as an iPad. Ridiculous. It was obvious the villa (No.51) had not been well looked after....

Tangalooma Island Resort is surrounded by white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and fringed by national park, presenting another world away right on Brisbane’s doorstep! The highlight of any stay is the opportunity to interact closely with nature. Each evening, a pod of wild bottlenose dolphins eagerly swim up to the beach where they are hand fed by our Dolphin Care Team and resort guests.
