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.

Book your romantic getaway at Tangalooma

Although Valentine’s Day has been and gone, that doesn’t mean you can’t spend a romantic weekend away with your special someone. With summer inching away and the weather warm yet mild, now is the perfect time to head out to an island along Australia’s spectacular eastern coast.

Moreton Island is a beautiful spot with crystal waters and golden beaches, perfect for a passionate interlude. This world renowned location offers up lots to do both on land and in the water with accommodation fit for royalty at the Tangalooma Island Resort.

Water-based Activities

There are lots of things to do in the sparkling waters surrounding Moreton Island. Whether you want to explore the Tangalooma wrecks by snorkel or a scuba diving session, fancy a kayak on the sea, want to swim in the salty sea or prefer to take part in the dolphin feeding experience, there is something for everyone. Have an intimate escape at the wrecks snorkelling between rainbow coloured fish or join the nightly dolphin feed by the jetty and get a photo of the two of you with one of the island’s resident dolphins! Or enjoy a relaxing sunset cruise with some nibbles and drinks, nestled in each other’s arms.

Land-based Activities

The island also has many land based activities perfect for couples. A favourite is the Tangalooma Massage Hut and Beauty Room. This little hut offers guests a wide range of treatments including detox and body treatments, facials, manicures and pedicures, waxing and tinting and, of course, massages. Set up a couples massage and enjoy relaxing in each other’s company with the ocean whispering at your feet.


Tangalooma Island Resort has lots of beautiful rooms and units to cater to your accommodation needs. Their Resort Units offer spectacular beach views through lush tropical gardens and access to a small pool below. With air-conditioning, ensuite bathroom and a kitchenette, it is like a home away from home.

The Hotel Rooms at the resort are also suited to couples. Only metres from the beach, these rooms feature a private balcony overlooking the island, a large ensuite bathroom with walk-in shower and tea and coffee making facilities. Upgrade to a Hotel Deluxe Room and you will also receive wine and chocolates on arrival, with crisp white towelling bathrobes and guaranteed ocean views.
