Snorkel and kayak at the Tangalooma Wrecks

The first stop on your Moreton Island adventure is the iconic Tangalooma Wrecks! This picturesque shipwreck off the coast of Moreton Island is a haven for marine life and photographers alike. Start with a guided snorkel tour of the wrecks so you can observe the historic site underneath the surface. You'll also get to glide around the Tangalooma Wrecks on a fully transparent kayak for a different perspective! Both snorkelling and kayaking give you the chance to spot corals, tropical fish, dolphins, and turtles. Both activities are weather, wind, and tide-dependent.

Go sand tobogganing at "The Desert"

Next, you'll jump into a 4WD "Tough Bus" and adventure across the rugged landscapes of Moreton Island. As the 4WD bounds over the island tracks, admire the untouched natural beauty of this Queensland gem. You'll soon arrive at "The Desert", a wide expanse of soft sand dunes that look like a real, remote desert! Stroll on the warm sand and take some otherworldy photos before it's time to head back down the dunes. But you won't just be walking back down - you'll be sand tobogganing at exhilarating speeds of up to 70km per hour!
