Tour Information

1 DAY MORETON ISLAND 4WD TOUR
Departs:  Daily

Our tour starts with a luxury cruise aboard MiCat 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 world's largest sand island  of which 98% is a protected National Park. With no sealed roads, 4WD is the only mode of transport.

Our first activity is to get straight into sand boarding and tobogganing. This has to be done as easly as possible in the day as summer temperatures get up to 36 degrees. This is awesome fun, high speed, high adrenaline. Moreton Bay Escapes provide both lie down toboggans as well as stand up boards.

Next stop, we cross the Island to the Open Beach. We travel through thick eucalypt forest, featuring beautiful grass trees up to 250 years old. The open beach is 38 klm of uninterrupted surf beach.

Body boarding and Body Surfing is next! We are off to North Point and Honeymoon Bay's secluded beach with great safe surf beaches.

After a picnic lunch we are off to Cape Moreton Lighthouse and information centre.
The imposing rock Headland is80m above sea level and gives us commanding views across all of Moreton Island and the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains. Look out to sea and spot Dolphins, Turtles and Whales (June to October). Moreton Island is home to hundreds of different birds, featuring White-bellied Sea Eagles, Pied Oysteer Catchers, Pelicans and thousands of wading birds.

Our last stop is Blue Lagoon, one of Moreton Island's beautiful fresh water lakes. Take a dip and soak up the naturally occurring tea tree oils (the fountain of youth).
Once rejuvenated, return to MiCat for our beautiful cruise home. What a day!

Tour includes morning tea, afternoon tea and picnic lunch, all activities and National Park fees.
