Moreton Island Interactive Map
A small island town with 28 people as per the 2016 census. Beautiful area with some heritage listed sites and lush parkland.
Castaways Moreton Island boasts brilliant glamping tents, unit and dorm accommodation as well as an on-site store and cafe. Just 100 metres from the beach, Moreton Islands Castaways Store & café is truly the place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life!
Beautiful coastal township. The 2016 census counted 49 residents - so we think you’ll be able to find some peace and quiet around here!
Blend volcanic rock and sandstone until it forms a break wall for the surf. Add plenty of ocean water so that it energetically cascades over it to then bubble and foam into a series of crystal clear pools.
This beach is shaped like a half moon and runs around 50m from end to end. It’s a beautiful place for a swim or a romantic picnic - but please be wary as there can be rips and hidden rocks in the area.
North Point camping area
Mix sun setting with North Point for spectacular evening views, spice it up with a hint of Glass House Mountains, a bottle of wine and some cheese for an unforgettable experience!
Blue Lagoon camping area
Scenic beachside camping area right next to the Blue Lagoon with toilets and showers available.
A maximum of 25 sites are available, all marked with totems. Seasonal closures mean that not all sites will be full all year round.
Moreton Bay Rock Oysters
Moreton Bay Rock Oysters is a family run business with the freshest, tastiest oysters around.
Comboyuro Point camping area
Fancy putting up a tent and catching a few? Bulwer’s most famous fishing area, Comboyuro Point, is just 2km north of the township. You can fish all along Bulwer Beach. Please check our camping guide for further info on camping on Moreton!
Ben-Ewa camping area
Ben-Ewa campground is in a valley providing shady sites and protection from strong winds. Sites are medium-sized and well-defined. Sheltered bay waters make this campground popular for young families and school groups
The Wrecks camping area
The Wrecks campground is situated right next to a sheltered bay. Camping sites are well defined, surrounded by native trees and shrubs, and you’re a hop, skip and a jump away from the Micat landing point!
Cape Moreton Lighthouse
Take vintage 1857 Moreton Cape lighthouse, and serve with fantastic views for a wonderful mix of time and place. Dolphins and whales are added when in season. The first lighthouse established in Queensland!
Who needs a shower when you have Blue Lagoon? Equal parts cool clear water and tea-tree oil. Dive in and splash around for a while. 42 hectares of fresh water!
15 sunken shipwrecks amongst colourful fish and marine life create an amazing snorkelling site. Brisbane’s only shipwrecked snorkelling site will blow your mind, it’s a must do experience!
The Gutter Bar
Have a beer, buy some fresh seafood from the trawlers and put your feet up. See you there!
Kooringal is a small but friendly little town at the southern end of Moreton Island. Kooringal has a population of 297 (Census 2011). The Gutter Bar and Moreton Bay Rock Oysters are both close by.
Big guns and fantastic views are vigorously whisked together to create a simple, yet powerful shot. The Rous Battery is home to the only 155mm battery within driving distance of Brisbane. Definitely worth a look whilst visiting Moreton Island!
Originally a whaling station founded in 1952, Tangalooma Island Resort is a resort on the west side of Moreton Island. It is known for its resort accommodation and dolphin-feeding program.
Natural erosion and strong winds have created an area on Moreton almost completely devoid of vegetation. Well, nobody knows exactly how it was formed in the first place, but it’s now a fantastic place to do some high speed sand tobogganing!
Wax up your sandboard and feel the rush as you reach speeds of up to 60km/h— the higher you go up the faster you come down! Get ready to burn some calories as you climb back up our amazing sandhills!
Sandboarding, but a bit more gentle than the big sandhills. Interested? Have a chat to our activity partner Sunset Safaris, or buy a sandboard at Castaways or on the Micat. Get to the little sandhills from the eastern surf beach.
