What To Expect
Your camping tour starts with early morning pickup at your central Brisbane location, and transfer to the ferry that takes you to Moreton Island. The ferry ride across Moreton Bay takes a little more than one hour, with views of the water and possible sightings of dolphins and other marine life. Refreshments are available for purchase from the onboard cafe. Upon arrival, drop off your gear at the campground before beginning your day’s journey. During your time on the island, your guide decides the best activities depending on the conditions and tides. Itineraries vary, but most tours include the historic Cape Moreton Light House for wildlife viewing and coastal views; the Blue Lagoon for a look at a freshwater lake infused with tea tree oils; and a stroll along 25 miles (40 km) of pristine surf beaches. For a fun thrill, try sand–tobogganing at 'the Desert,' then visit Five Hills lookout, which looks over mainland Australia and the Glass House Mountains. You can also take short bush walks with your guide, who shares informative details about the local plants and animals. Then be amazed as you embark on a guided snorkel tour around 15 shipwrecks that teem with aquatic life such as colorful fish, eels, corals and more. Please note that Moreton Island is an adventure destination with conditions that can be rough depending on the season. Transportation is by 4WD on roads that can be bumpy, and activities such as snorkeling are subject to conditions and may change without notice.

We have had a really bad experience. The Camping site was very much run down and very dirty. We are two women and a child and we would have been the only ones who stayed overnight. Also, there were bushfires that you could smell and we did not feel safe at all. Therefore, we decided to leave ealier after the daily program. The guide was very nice and friendly and really the only highlight of that day. He has helped us to take the last ferry back to Brisbane and we had to take a taxi on our own expenses to get to the city center. After all, we paid more than 1000 AUS for this trip and I would not recomment anyone to take this tour as the cost-benefit was the worst thing I have ever experienced on my trips - and I am travelling all over the world.
