Photo Diary: Moreton Island

Moreton Island is an island that is 58 kilometers from the capital city of Brisbane in the state of Queensland in Australia. It is a paradise and there is no doubt or question in that. The beaches are crystal clear and has only sand dunes within the island. The island offers many activities to do, to name some are the 4 wheel driving, snorkeling, hand feeding the dolphins and helicopter rides.

My friends and I decided to visit this beautiful island for a weekend. On a Friday night, we took a flight from Sydney to Brisbane.

The next day we took a ferry from Brisbane to Moreton Island. The weather was fantastic and warm – a perfect weather to explore.

The views of the water from the ferry were lovely and refreshing.

We spotted lots of jelly fishes.

We stayed at the Tangalooma Island Resort. The resort is right along the beach and yes it is one of the best places I have ever stayed at.

Once we reached the resort, we immediately went for the snorkeling. The snorkeling was at a ship wreck. The ship wreck is amazing but we did not see many marine life.

The sunset was stunning and lived up to the expectations.

In the night, we hand fed the dolphins at the resort. Unfortunately, I do not have any pictures.

The next day started off as a lazy morning.

We had hired a 4WD vehicle and we drove through the sand dunes.

And yes it drizzled sometimes.

We drove till the Cape Moreton Lighthouse.

The island has lots of Pelicans.
