Moreton Island is a unique paradise of golden beaches, rolling surf and beautiful freshwater lakes, and easily accessible from Brisbane or the Gold Coast as a day trip. Join Australian Sunset Safaris and explore and snorkel the stunning Tangalooma Shipwrecks with a knowledgeable guide.

Australian Sunset Safaris were the first to pioneer “Transparent Kayaks” in Queensland. Kayak around the Tangalooma Shipwrecks and see fish and coral like never before, without even having to go under the water. You'll also get to experience the awesome fish feeding frenzy in the Transparent Kayaks.

After enjoying a wonderful fresh picnic lunch on the beach, you'll take a trip to "The Desert" in the 4WD ‘Tough Bus’. Once here, experience the exhilaration of sliding down the giant sand dunes at speeds of up to 70 kilometres an hour. 

In the evening, you'll stay in the rustic “Castaways Beach Resort,” with optional accommodation upgrades available. Enjoy a tasty dinner before some night time transparent kayaking (extra cost). Or you can sit around the campfire, roast marshmallows and have a few drinks with your fellow travellers.

      Stunning scenery, lovely guides & fun packed tour

      Went to my first Moreton Island trip with a bunch of friends and left with so much love and memories. The sand Island is near pristine with crystal clear water and beautiful native trees. We had a chill first day on a 4WD around the island, very aussie experience, driven by our funny tour guide Grant who so happen to be an amazing cook as well! Gotta say meals prepared throughout the trip were surprisingly good. The bunk we stayed at was just a short walk to the beach, watching the sunset and stargazing on the beach was magical. Second day was the fun stuff, sandboarding (so blown away by the vast dessert!), snorkelling among fishes and kayaking around the shipwrecks. All of us agreed that this trip was remarkable. Shoutout to our super lovely guides Grant & Natasha for taking great care of us and definitely made this trip much more enjoyable & memorable, Thank you! I truely hope anyone visiting the island would continue to protect this gem, keep it clean with care & love.

      Our trip and tour guides are super duper awesome!

      Had a two day one night trip to Moreton Bay with my group of friends from Singapore. The trip was amazing and wonderful especially having two friendly and lovely tour guides (Grant and Natasha) to guide us around!! My friends and I felt that this is a best experience ever and the trip is super worth it :) Side note: The lunch and dinner cooked by Grant was so gooooood!! I strongly recommended this 2d1n trip to Moreton island :)

      Wonderful island, excellent tour guide!

      We have enjoyed a wonderful night at the Moreton island with an excellent tour guide, Grant! The scenic view on the island is so nice and the games are fun! Grant is friendly and nice, and he is definitely a good chef making us delicious lunch, dinner and breakfast! He was willing to share his story and we chatted a lot during the trip. The best thing we gained from the trip was a group of friend! I will never forget the days and night we spent at this beautiful Island. We have spent one day for scenic tour and another day for some games (sandboarding, kayaking, snorkelling). The guides are experienced in organizing the tour. They know much about the weather and the island. We feel safe with them.
