If you’re considering an island holiday but don’t wish to venture too far from the city, you can’t do much better than Moreton Island. A short 75 minute ferry ride from Brisbane and you’re settling into Tangalooma Island Resort. Between 24 April and 13 May, rooms are going from AUD 129 per night for stays up to 30 August, 2018.
A packed to-do list
Lazing on the beach or by the pool might be high on your agenda, but you could also:
- hand-feed wild bottlenose dolphins
- snorkel through 15 sunken ship wrecks which (home to over 200 species of tropical fish)
- go quad biking
- go on a 4WD tours
- join a desert safari
- ride sea scooters
The folks at Tangalooma Island Resort tell us that there are over 50 island based tours and activities that you can join, so there’s plenty to get up to.
But wait, isn’t it winter?
Yes… but a Queensland winter! The sub-tropical winter is mild, dry and can sometimes even be quite warm. Think of it as out-of-doors, but with a bit of air conditioning. If you’re travelling from down south, you’ll be in for a pleasant surprise.
