Guide to Moreton Island
Sand dunes, shipwrecks and sparkly beaches. Welcome to Brisbane’s secret garden.
Perched in Brisbane’s backyard, Moreton Island is the world’s third largest sand island, but there’s much more than just sand on this adventurer’s slice of paradise. In just a 75-minute ferry from Brisbane, you can be snorkelling amid a wave of rainbow-coloured fish, whizzing down a sand dune, bathing in a blue lagoon or hand-feeding dolphins in the wild. The centre of the island is made up of the Moreton National Park – which covers 95 per cent of the island – while its coastline reveals pristine beaches with both calm and surfable waves.
