Winter woes – pick yourself up with an island geta

Although the colder weather may be creeping up, that’s no reason to stop going to the beach. Australia is lucky enough to have pleasant weather all year round and even as it grows colder, the weather is often splendid all through winter, with locals donning only a light jacket. If you are looking for an island getaway in winter, Moreton Island, located off the shore of south east Queensland, is one destination that has lots to do all year round.

Moreton Island is one of the largest sand islands in the world, home to a wide variety of wildlife and the popular accommodation provider, Tangalooma Island Resort. The resort features a wide range of accommodation options from apartments to houses, as well as lots of great activities to keep you busy, no matter what the weather is.

Although the water may be a bit too chilly to venture into come winter, there are lots of other things to keep you busy while holidaying on Moreton Island. Land based activities include things such as sand tobogganing, a number of guided tours, massage and beauty services and much more. And if you want to get in the water without getting wet, there are a great range of water based activities as well. Cruises, parasailing, dolphin tours and canoe rides are just some of the activities you can enjoy without getting in the water, as well as the winter only activity – whale watching.

So, don’t give up on your dream of a tropical paradise in Australia just because it may be the “wrong season”! There is always plenty to do on Moreton Island, with some activities, such as whale watching, only available in winter.
