Full description
When you check in at the wharf, the staff will advise all tour times of the day to guests. You'll then travel from Brisbane to Moreton Island on a scenic boat ride. You may choose to enjoy a complimentary beverage either on the boat ride over or the return journey.

Arrive at beautiful Moreton Island after a 75-minute boat journey. If you have selected the desert safari tour, you’ll travel by 4WD vehicle to the Tangalooma Desert. With this thrilling and bumpy 4WD bus tour - getting there is half the fun. Get a look at the real Moreton Island, the world's third largest sand island. You can choose to participate in the exhilarating sport of Moreton Island sand tobogganing, reaching speeds of up to 40km per hour. Perfect for everyone from beginners to thrill-seekers as you can choose your own pace.

If you have chosen the marine discovery cruise, you’ll journey along the coastline in search of dolphins, dugongs, green sea turtles, sea cucumbers, rays and more. The purpose-built discovery boat provides unobstructed views of Moreton Bay’s intriguing marine life. Enjoy full eco commentary, provided to explain the habitats and behaviours of the local marine creatures.

Throughout the day, you’ll also have a full access to the resort facilities including pools, restaurants and bars. At sunset, head to the jetty to see the family of wild dolphins as they grace the shores of Tangalooma Island Resort for their nightly feed.

Then, head back to the wharf to depart for Brisbane at approximately 7:00 PM. After the 75-minute return journey, you will arrive back in Brisbane at approximately 8:15 PM.
