Things To Do In Moreton Island
The city of Brisbane in Australia has a lot to offer in terms of tourist attractions. Visiting it is often an eye opener for many, since most of the attractions that are present are not available in many other parts of the world. For instance, you could decide to visit Moreton Island, where you will be able to indulge in the following attractions:
Visit the Cape Moreton Lighthouse
This is one of the few structures on the otherwise unspoiled and sandy Moreton Island. The lighthouse provides very good views of the rest of the island, which makes it a perfect spot for a bit of photography. If you are a history buff, you will also find it very interesting as well. The lighthouse was built around 1857 and was used to navigate the Moreton Bay.
Enjoy the scenery at the Blue Lagoon
If you are the kind of person who is more interested in a picturesque view, this is one of the best places to enjoy such a view. The blue lagoon features very clear water surrounded by one of the whitest beaches anywhere around the world. The fact that the water is safe and cool makes it a perfect spot for a swim during those hot summer days.
Go whale watching
You can also watch and feed the whales that frequent Moreton Island as well. There are tours that depart Brisbane each day for this. There are two of such trips: one that starts at 7.30 am and one that starts at around 10am. The cost of the tour is around $70 for adults and $40 for kids, and you are likely to find that the experience will be more than worth it.
Go camping on the island
There are many sites where you can camp on the island, giving you an opportunity to indulge in the beauty that is Moreton Island for a few hours. However, you should know that in order to camp, you will need to get a permit to do so. This is cheap and easy, so it should not put you off doing it. The camping sites have showers, toilets and drinking water available, but you will need to carry any other supplies you need in advance since there are no shops there.
The island is home to a large number of bird species, since it forms a focal point for birds that are migrating from other parts of the world. The best time to do bird watching on the islands is between April and September.
