Where is Tangalooma Island Resort

Where is Tangalooma Island Resort?

Tangalooma Island Resort is located on Moreton Island (Mulgumpin), approximately 40 kilometres off the coast from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Moreton Island is one of the least polluted and least disturbed coastal environments along the Queensland-New South Wales coastline. Tangalooma is the aboriginal word meaning "where the fish gather".

As the third largest sand island in the world, Moreton Island consists entirely of sand, apart from a small area of sandstone and rhyolite at Cape Moreton, which has built up over the past 400,000 years. It is also home to the highest stabilised coastal sand dune in the world, Mount Tempest, which at 285 metres provides 360 degrees of breath-taking views.

Moreton Island enjoys a moderate subtropical climate all year round, with temperatures averaging 22-30 degrees Celsius by day in the summer and between 12-22 degrees Celsius in winter.

Moreton Bay Marine Park

Moreton Bay Marine Park was established in 1993 to protect the ecologically significant habitats of Moreton Bay. It stretches along 125 kilometres of coastline from the Gold Coast to Caloundra, covering 3400 square kilometres and is managed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Moreton Bay Marine Park is internationally listed as a RAMSAR wetland, meaning that it provides a vitally important feeding and roosting site for migratory and resident shore birds. Moreton Bay Marine Park is the only place in the world where significant populations of dugongs and turtles can still be found close to a major metropolitan centre.
