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.
