If you love snorkeling or a first timer, head down to the Tangalooma Wrecks, and snorkel around the wrecks, the most amazing scenery, don’t forget to take some bread with you to feed the fish while you are out there. Snorkeling the Tangalooma Wrecks is a great experience and remember to take your underwater camera to snap a picture of the turtle swimming under you, or the dugong hiding in the wreck below.
If you love sand and speed, head to the desert for sand boarding. The desert is located behind Tangalooma Resort and in Summer does get quite hot so don’t forget your sand board, hat, sunscreen and plenty of water.
Tangalooma Resort does have restaurants and cafes, a bar area for Tangalooma Resort guests. The resort is now closed to non- resort guests, but if you would like to take part in any Tangalooma Resort activity or dine out, you can head to the Tangalooma Island Resort web page and obtain a day pass.
Tangalooma Resort guests do have access to quad tours, bird feeding, desert tours, light house and island scenic tours, Dolphin feeding, helicopter flights, boat tours, hire segways, kayaking and snorkeling/diving tours.
Cowan Cowan does have the old war gunning placements which are full of history and are located right on the beach in front of Cowan Cowan. The best way to see the gunning placements, park your 4wd at the beach enclosure at Cowan Cowan and walk the beach to see the old concrete bunkers and gun turrets.
Cape Moreton light house is a must see, the lighthouse is at the Northern tip of Moreton Island. There is a bit of waking and stairs to reach the light house and the old light house keepers houses, which do now accommodate National Parks Rangers. The light house is not open to the public, you can see the light house and the views across the island towards caloundra and the Glass house mountains are superb, Look back along the Eastern Beach for spectacular beach views, the views are priceless.
The list is endless of activites and sight-seeing on Moreton Island, so come on over to Moreton island, book your accommodation at Tangalooma, Cowan Cowan or Bulwer and experience our island pleasures and beauty.
