Moreton is the third largest sand island in the world. It stretches 38 km N/S and 9km E/W across its widest points with only a small rock outcrop at Cape Moreton Lighthouse.
The island is surrounded by pristine clear water and sandy beaches where surf and rock fishing are widely enjoyed. You can find a variety of eco-systems with swamps, forests, mangroves and salt marshes easily accessible by walking and 4WD tracks. The Blue Lagoon is a fresh water lake where many families go to swim. Only at one hour by boat from Brisbane, Moreton Island can be accessed either:
- By a daily barge boarding at Howard Smith Drive (Port of Brisbane) which can carry both walking passengers and 4WD vehicles. It lands at the Ship Wrecks, about 500m north of Tangalooma Resort.
- By the Tangalooma Flyer, boarding at Holt Street- Pinkemba for walk on Passengers only. The Flyer docks at the jetty, in front of the Tangalooma Resort.
