MORETON ISLAND​

new experiences around every corner

Moreton Island is a stunning and popular tourist destination located off the southeast coast of Queensland, Australia. It is the third-largest sand island in the world and stretches approximately 38 kilometers (24 miles) in length. The island is named after Lord Morton, an 18th-century British parliamentarian.

Renowned for its diverse landscapes, ranging from sandy beaches and sand dunes to lush forests and freshwater lakes. The crystal-clear waters surrounding the island are ideal for snorkeling, scuba diving, and water sports.

The waters surrounding Moreton Island are home to several shipwrecks, making it a haven for snorkelers and scuba divers. The Tangalooma Wrecks, a collection of sunken ships, are especially popular for underwater exploration.
