Moreton Island is a sparkling gem in Southern Moreton Bay. A land of natural beauty, just waiting to be explored…and there are plenty of ways to do just that!
Tangalooma’s new Southern Safari Tour is a 6-hour adventure that takes guests south of the resort to some untouched locations. It takes in the spectacular Big Sand Dunes, which offer incredible views over the glistening water of Moreton Bay.
The tour then heads south to the southern tip and Kooringal. Kooringal is a quaint island village that’s home to local’s hangout – The Gutter Bar. It’s a classic beach bar, with plenty of charm, Jimmy the resident parrot, lots of little treasures and some of the freshest seafood around. Lunch is included on the tour, before the 4WD bus heads East. When it comes to isolation, the eastern beaches of Moreton are as remote as they get – expansive, rugged and a time-capsule of the past.
A quick visit to Rous Battery explains Moreton’s military history, where remnants of the 1940’s cannons remain. The Eastern side is also home to a hidden gem known as The Mirrapools – a gorgeous, natural pool where freshwater and the ocean meets. It’s a tranquil spot to float and while away a few hours…and just one of the many fairly-undiscovered wonders on Moreton Island.
If you’d like to visit the secret locations, off the beaten track, you can book the Southern Safari Tour through Tangalooma Island Resort.
