Moreton Island Cruise W612 Originally a whaling station, Tangalooma is a resort township on the west side of Moreton Island, just a seventy minute catamaran trip from Brisbane, in Queensland, Australia. The island is home to Queensland’s oldest operating lighthouse located at Cape Moreton on the northern tip of the island. The star attraction at the resort is undoubtedly the unique experience of hand-feeding a pod of the amazing wild bottlenose dolphins. From June through to October visitors can join whale-watching tours, getting a close view of these gentle giants. Then there’s the resort’s Desert Safari Tour that allows guests to participate in the thrilling sport of sand tobogganing down a 70 m high sand dune reaching speeds of up to 50 kph. more/less…
