Moreton Island is one of our largest sand islands accessible by 4WD only. The drive along the Eastern surf beach to the Light house especially in whale watching season is well worth while. Continue over the hill to North Point, arguably one of the best beaches you will see, a mostly gentle surf break and the Champagne Rock Pools will make a great day out.
