  • My sister and I did a 5 day cruise from Sydney to Moreton Island in Feb 18. A perfect destination for a cruise. Lots for activities on the island for singles, couples and the entire family. A bucket list item for those who have never been. Very beautiful!
  • My favorite island near Brisbane area. Love the snorkeling and doplphd feeding. Always feel recharged and relaxed at this beautiful place.
  • Wonderful holiday destination. Very water sports or relaxation orientated. We did a 5 day cruise from Sydney to Moreton Island and return. My sister and I did Quad biking, kayaking in clear kayaks. The fish were amazing to see around the shipwrecks. Finished off with parasailing over the magical blue waters of Moreton Island. Then we cooled off in the beautiful clear waters before relaxing at the island bar and heading back to our cruise ship. A must do! We will be back Moreton Island! You left your mark on us!
