Moreton Bay

Area

Explore the aquatic playground and marine sanctuary that is Moreton Bay and Islands, encompassing 125 kilometres of stunning blue waters from Bribie Island in the North to the Southern Bay Islands of the Redlands.

Brimming with natural wonders and home to two of the world’s largest sand islands – Moreton Island and North Stradbroke Island – this diverse paradise is famous for its white sandy beaches, rugged coastlines and array of outdoor activities.

Nature lovers will be inspired to explore the assortment of habitats from the playful ocean life to the soaring sand dunes and abundant wetlands. These surroundings provide the perfect environment for all sorts of activities including sailing and cruising, snorkelling, sand tobogganing, four-wheel driving, bushwalking and much more.

The many bayside villages in the area are a mere 25 kilometres from Brisbane Central Business District and provide a charming community of restaurants, cafes, a winery commanding expansive bay views, independent art galleries, museums and bayside picnic spots.

For a special and unique treat, visit between June and October to see pods of whales putting on a show. This region provides the best land-based vantage points along the entire coast and is a base for the many cruises that get up close and personal with the whales.
