Watch the tides!
When driving along the beaches it is important to take into account the tides on Moreton Island and remember the following:
• The best time to travel is around low tide.
• Avoid driving two hours either side of high tide – as some areas are more affected by the tidal activity than others.
• Creeks flowing out onto the beaches should be crossed with caution and at walking pace.
• You should not stop your vehicle in any creek-bed — use low speed and check depth and sand softness before crossing.
