Located 25 miles away from the Brisbane coastline, Moreton Island remains one of the best day trip options available to those based in the city. Day cruises depart for the island from Brisbane and visitors can also drive up to the island or hop on board the Tangalooma ferry. The main three settlements on the island are found on the western quarter and this includes the southern town of Kooringal, Cowan in the centre and the northern city of Bulwer.
The main attraction on Moreton Island is its stunning beaches which are ideal for swimming activities as well as fishing and surfing safaris. Tourists in search of more tranquil beaches should head to the western part of the island where the waters are not only warm and gentle but crystal clear. The Moreton Island National Park which is spread out over nearly every corner of the island is another reason most travellers visit the isle. Milton Hotel Brisbane and countless other resorts are also on hand for those who wish to stay closer to the island.
Some of the most popular things to do in Moreton Island include feeding bottlenose dolphins by hand and scuba diving in shipwrecks strewn across the ocean floor off the coast of the island. Known for its spectacular sunsets, the island offers many locations from which to catch this daily miracle. Riding a Toboggan across the island’s sand dunes is another must-experience activity for those based at The Milton Brisbane or any similar venue.
