Tangalooma Marine Education & Conservation Centre

Eco Certified Ecotourism

Surrounded by 98% national park and built on the picturesque shores of Moreton Island, the Tangalooma Marine Education and Conservation Centre provides an up-close and personal look into the wonderful world of Moreton Bay. A passionate and dedicated team of Eco Rangers provide a wide range of Eco Walks, Tours and Presentations for all ages and backgrounds. These tours are designed to interactively educate people about conservation and their surrounding eco systems. Through education, attitudes can be changed and people can become aware of their environments so they can start making a difference. 

The Marine Education and Conservation Centre (TMECC) is unique from any other facility as the environment is right on the doorstep, with endangered animals frequently passing the shores. Dolphins, Dugongs, Whales, Turtles, Rays, Marine Birds and so much more can be seen daily with interpretative taks provided by the TMECC Eco Rangers. 

TMECC aims to educate young children with an established program called Eco Marines. Eco Marines is a non-for-profit environmental program that assists and sponsors community engagement in advocacy and action to protect domestic and international waterways, rivers, oceans and wildlife.

An Island adventure on four wheels

When most people think of Moreton Island, they imagine water related activities like snorkelling in the crystal seas, wreck dives off the shore and feeding wild dolphins. There is no denying that these activities will make for a spectacular vacation, but what many people don’t realise is that Moreton Island has just as many exciting activities to offer on shore as they do off.

Beyond its sandy golden beaches, Moreton Island is one of the best four wheel driving destinations in Queensland. Rugged 4WD tracks wind their way through the 37km stretch of bush and sand dunes from Kooringal Beach in the south to Cape Moreton at the most northern point.

You can enjoy an authentic Australian bush experience aboard your own vehicle or hire a 4WD from Tangalooma Island Resort. Barges depart regularly from the mouth of the Brisbane River and travel to the island’s popular 4WD launch site near the Tangalooma Wrecks where you can begin your four wheel drive adventure.  

You never know what to expect from an off road adventure on Moreton Island. Get a feel for the lay of the land with a drive around the entire coastal perimeter of the island or simply explore the dirt tracks hidden in the thick Australia bush. If you lose track of time on your 4WD adventure, you can always spend the night in one of Moreton Island’s campgrounds with 4WD access and enjoy the inky skies littered with stars before heading out again the next day.

Moreton Island is the perfect destination for a four wheel drive adventure. Whether you’re an off road veteran or hoping to book a day tour for you and the kids, a Moreton Island 4WD adventure is one of the best family holidays in Queensland.

Contact the friendly staff at Tangalooma Island Resort for tour bookings or for information about many of the other activities on offer at Moreton Island.
