Moreton Island National Park and Recreation Area

Head for the sand hills

Feel the thrill and excitement of Moreton Island National Park and Recreation Area as you reach the top of┬áthe southern hemisphere’s highest vegetated sand dune, Mount Tempest. The long sweeping beaches, freshwater creeks and lagoons and abundant wildflowers of Moreton Island are a short ferry ride from the city but a world away from the hustle and bustle. Mostly national park, the island abounds with nature, history and Aboriginal culture. Choose to stay at the local resort or a self-contained holiday house or apartment. Alternatively, take a holiday on the ‘wild side’! Pack up the 4WD with camping gear and make Moreton Island your get-away-from-it all Aussie camping holiday.
