MORETON BAY ESCAPES offers fantastic day and overnight camping tours to Moreton Island. Our tours are conducted in purpose built 4WD vehicles. We offer a range of small group day and overnight tours suitable for nature lovers and outdoor people. Our guided 4WD tours are designed to show you the most of Moreton Island National Park and its flora, fauna, history, indigenous culture and geology. Tall sand dunes, miles of sandy beaches, crystal clear creeks and lagoons, coastal heath, rocky headlands and abundant wildflowers make Moreton Island a jewel in South East Queensland.

Moreton Island Adventure Day
Departs Mon, Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sun



  • Our Moreton Island Snorkel and Sandboarding tour starts with a luxury cruise across beautiful Moreton Bay to Moreton Island. On arrival we board our 4WD and drive off the ferry directly on to the beach. Moreton Island is the worlds third largest sand island of which 98% is a protected National Park, with no sealed roads, 4WD is the only mode of transport!

  • Travelling by 4WD along Middle Road, we pass through thick eucalypt forest, featuring beautiful Xanthorrhoea (Grass Trees) up to 250 years old on our way to The Desert, the home of Sand Boarding.

  • Sand boarding and tobogganing is an awesome fun, high speed and high adrenalin activity and speeds of up to 50km/h can be reached. From beginners, young children and families, to the most adventurous adrenalin junkie, The Desert is the perfect place to learn, or fine tune, your sand boarding skills. This open sand dune is shaped every day by winds that form the perfect wave. Make sure you bring your camera to get plenty of impressive shots!

  • While a fresh picnic lunch is prepared by your guide take a moment to relax on the white sandy beach. Go for a leisurely walk or swim, or take some time out to sunbake.

  • After lunch we take you on a guided snorkel around the Tangalooma Shipwrecks. With 15 shipwrecks located just 50m off the beach, the Tangalooma Shipwrecks are home to one of Queensland’s most diverse marine eco systems. See a huge range of marine life including Butterbrim, blue and orange banded Parrotfish, Big Eye Trevally, Wobbegong, Blue-Tang Surgeonfish (Dory) and Clown Fish (Nemo)!

  • For those people who are not strong swimmers or do not wish to snorkel, Kayaking around the Shipwrecks is a fantastic alternative option. View these magnificent shipwrecks from above the water for a completely different outlook on Moreton Bay and its spectacular scenery. Kayaking may also be offered as an alternative to snorkelling should conditions be unfavourable.

  • Regrettably, we finish the day with our return to the ferry for a luxury cruise back to Brisbane.
