      Accommodation In Tangalooma

      Are you dreaming of spending some time in sunny Queensland? Wot about taking a well-deserved break on Moreton Island and living it up while you stay in our Tangalooma accommodation?

      History

      "Tangalooma" means "where fishes meet" in the local Aboriginal dialect and there is plenty of marine life to see around here.

      Tangalooma is most famous for being the southern hemisphere’s largest land based whaling station in the 1950s. While the culling of humpbacks that occurred here put the whales on the endangered species list in 1965, Tangalooma has since turned into an eco-tourism destination where animals of all kinds – including whales – are actively protected.

      Things to do

      Besides whale watching, some of the most popular activities in Tangalooma are snorkelling and scuba diving around the Tangalooma Wrecks, a line of 15 ships that were purposely sunk in 1963 to provide a safe spot for smaller boats to anchor in the bay. The wrecks are now covered in coral and teeming with tropical fish, so they're a fantastic place to check out the local marine life.

      The highlight of any trip to Tangalooma is the opportunity to handfeed wild dolphins. Every evening, a group of dolphins arrive at the jetty to be fed, just like they have since 1992. You can learn all about the gentle creatures at the Dolphin Education Centre and you'll go home with some excellent photos and memories.

      Other fun activities include sand boarding, parasailing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, banana boat riding, quad biking and bush walking.

      Shopping and dining

      The only shop in Tangalooma is a convenience store to grab snacks and essential items, so you’re best off purchasing souvenirs once you get back to the main land if you’re looking for a memento. There are a few restaurants and cafes to choose from at Tangalooma Island Resort but if you'd prefer to prepare your own dinner, there are some barbeques on the shore that you can use.

      Getting here and around

      Tangalooma is just a 75 minute ferry ride from Brisbane, so nab one of these cheap flights to Brisbane and make a beeline for the ferry at the Holt Street Wharf.

      So wot are you waiting for? Book your flights, pick a room and start packing!
