Cruises from Tangalooma
Originally a whaling station, Tangalooma is a resort township on the west side of Moreton Island, just a 70 minute catamaran trip from Brisbane, in Queensland, Australia. Cruise ships from Sydney anchor offshore for a day on the island. Moreton 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 October visitors can join whale-watching tours, getting a close view of these gentle giants.
