What You Can Expect
Your Moreton Island 4WD tour will take you along Middle Road passing through thick eucalyptus forest, featuring beautiful grass trees up to 250 years old, before reaching 'the Desert', home of sand boarding on Moreton Island.
Sand boarding is an awesome, fun, high-adrenalin activity. Speeds of up to 50 kilometers per hour can be reached. From beginners, young children and families to the most adventurous adrenalin junkie, Moreton Island is the perfect place to experience the thrill of sand boarding. Make sure you bring your camera as there will be plenty of photo opportunities.
After your sand boarding adventure there will be time to relax on a white sandy beach, or take a dip in the blue waters while a fresh picnic lunch is prepared.
After lunch, it's time for a guided snorkel around the Tangalooma Shipwrecks. The 15 shipwrecks located just 50 meters off the beach provide wonderful snorkeling opportunities. See a huge range of marine life including blue and orange banded parrotfish, big eye trevally, blue-tang surgeonfish (Dory) and clown fish (Nemo)!
For those who prefer not to snorkel, kayaking around the Tangalooma Shipwrecks is a fantastic alternative. See the magnificent shipwrecks from above the water for a completely different outlook of Moreton Bay and its spectacular scenery. Kayaking may also be offered as an alternative to snorkeling should conditions be unfavorable. Please note: Snorkeling is subject to tide and weather conditions and may change without notice.
You'll cruise back to the mainland by ferry before returning to your Brisbane hotel.
An action-packed day with snorkelling being the main event. It was hard work swimming out to the wrecks, round them and back against the current. Andrew, the guide/driver, knew his stuff and helped less able swimmers. This is for serious action-people only - there is no chance of a rest half way round as it is deep water. A chance to get away from boring coach tours. You will be wet, covered in sand and bounced around in a 4x4 car as your drive along the beach for miles. You stay in your swimmers all day. No toilets (hole in the ground, or wait for the ferry). No roads - hence need for 4x4. Bring sunscreen (waterproof), insect repellent, towel, swimmers and flip-flops as these make it easy as there are no changing facilities.
I thoroughly recommend this tour. Small group of eight on the day worked well, any more and the 4x4 would be too cramped.
The picture associated with this tour is misleading - I wouldn't recommend it if younger than 17.
We didn't get to sandboard as it had been raining so we did a tour of the island instead. I think the day varies based on tides, weather and participants.
Had the best day. The tour guide was great, kept the group laughing and having a good time. Awesome experience, awesome place, totally recommend. Would do it every weekend given the chance
