Casual Visitor Access (Non Resort Guests)


Please read the changes to casual visitor and public access to Tangalooma Island Resort - Moreton Island, as part of Tangalooma Island Resort's commitment towards delivering exceptional holiday experiences for our official guests:

Please note that all Casual Visitor Passes are suspended until further notice.
We apologise for any inconvenience. If you wish to visit Tangalooma Island Resort for the day you can still book a return day cruise on board our passenger ferries.

Access to Tangalooma Island Resort is strictly restricted to guests staying in Tangalooma Island Resort accommodation or visiting for the day via a Tangalooma Island Resort Day Cruise only. 

  • From 1 December 2015 Casual visitors will need to have pre-booked a (free of charge) 'Casual Day Visitor Pass' to be granted access to the resort property. This pass allows us to get a better handle on guest numbers so we can provide adequate staffing and facilities for all guests of the resort. The number of passes issued daily are limited, guided by the levels of guest occupancy at the resort.

  • Boat or jet ski visitors will have a dedicated parking zone on the beach which will be closed to swimmers. This gives our resort guests and their families a safe feeling when swimming at the beach, whilst motorised watercraft can have an exclusive beach landing area whereby they also feel they are not hindering people swimming out the front of the resort. 4WD parking will also be available as per normal.

Please see below for a full explanation of this new policy and how it will work going forward:
