Located within the city limits of Brisbane, the capital city of the state of Queensland in Australia is the exceptionally beautiful Moreton Island. Going by the exact geographical location, it is on the eastern side of the Moreton Bay on the coast of south east Queensland. When you see the very busy and fast life of Brisbane it will be difficult for you to realize that you can be in a completely different atmosphere within a couple of hours and enjoy the quiet and serene beauty of a sand island so close to this bustling city. Known as the ‘Gem of South East Queensland’, Moreton Island is the place to be if you are looking for a quick gateway and feel revitalized and totally charged up to face the challenges of day to day life. Initially used as a weekend gateway for the people living in and around Brisbane for fishing, four wheel drives, camping and whale watching. But with more and more people from other parts of the country and abroad keeping this beautiful sand island on top of their wish list, tourism has become a flourishing business and lots of tour companies have come up and offer attractive tour packages to this wonderful destination. But with so many options it becomes difficult for the tourists to zero in on a particular one and so they go by the reviews of some established review agencies like Trip Advisor and read the comments of people.
Winner of the certificate of excellence from Trip Advisor and endorsed by lots of happy and fully satisfied customers , Sunset Safaris has become the number one tour operator chosen by most of the tourists coming to Moreton Island Activities Australia. They offer both day tour and 2 day tours to visit this sand island and they come with free room upgradations. With free pickups and drop service the tourists can join the tour from Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast and the excitement starts with a Mi Cat ferry ride across the beautiful Moreton Bay. This luxury cruise has a well-stocked up café and bar and you can sit comfortably, have a drink or pick up a snack and feel completely relaxed by the sound of the water and a delicious anticipation of the day that is about to start. To take you around the island and show you all the major attractions the tour company has super comfortable 4WD coaches with all forward facing seats and picture windows from where one can see the extraordinary landscapes and the passing scenes. In the local museum you will learn about the Ngugi people who were the original inhabitants and how the island was discovered by Captain James Cook and subsequently by Matthew Flinders.
You can see a lot of shell middens which bear testimony to the aboriginal occupation some 2000 years back. From Cape Moreton you will be able to see a lot of marine animals swimming close to the beach and see the oldest light house which had become operational in 1857. The desert like area with sand dunes, the tallest one being Mt Tempest with a height of 920ft is great for Sand Tobogganing. This super exciting adventure sport will require you to walk up to the top of a dune and slide down from it by balancing your body on the top of a sand board and the speed can vary between 50 to 70 kilometres per hour. As the island has a lovely water park the tourists are taken for a fully guided Snorkelling tour near the Tangalooma shipwreck site and here you can see the magic of the water world unfolding before your eyes. Thousands of reef fishes, turtles, dolphins and the multi coloured corals make the place look totally magical and in fact you can get a different perspective as you will go for the night kayaking in the same site. Sunset Safaris Moreton Island Tours are extremely popular and it is safer to book in advance and come back feeling on top of the world.
