From pristine beaches to stunning outlooks, enjoy a stay-cation at Tangalooma Island Resort and get away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland.

A short 75 minute scenic ferry ride from Brisbane, Tangalooma offers an array of activities for the whole family and will remind you why we are called the lucky country after all.

There is no better way to watch the sun go down then by feeding a wild bottlenose dolphin, and at Tangalooma you can do just that. Bring the whole family to the shoreline and watch these playful creatures in their own natural habitat.

With a Tangalooma dolphin care team member with you every step of the way, this will be an experience for the whole family.

Whether you want a leisurely paddle around the shore, or a more of an action-fuelled adventure, Tangalooma’s bottomless kayaks will keep everyone entertained. Starting at the Tangalooma Wrecks this kayak tour will let you see an abundance of marine life right under your feet… literally!

Desert the sea for the sky, and see Moreton Island from a different perspective in a private helicopter scenic flight. The sky is the limit with this experience, and seating up to four people in the helicopter at a time, the family will take in aerial views of the island’s wondrous sights, including the Tangalooma Wrecks, sand dunes and Cape Moreton.

Tangalooma Island Resort’s eastern cape has arguably one of the best sunsets the east coast has to offer. And what better way to watch the sun fade over the water than on an indulgent sunset cruise. Relaxing and picturesque, soak up the views while enjoying drinks, music and commentary on-board with the family.

Keep your feet on the mainland and take in the ocean views in style on a Tangalooma segway tour, gliding along the sandy white beaches. Easy to use, a tour guide will be nearby the whole time, pointing out fun-facts along the way.

Between the variety of tours, land-based and water-based activities on offer, Tangalooma Island is the ideal place to switch to cruise mode.
