Moreton Island with Kids
Moreton Island is one of Emma’s most favourite places in the world and it’s not hard to see why. With pristine, 30km beaches and turquoise waves lapping at the shore, it is a beach lovers paradise. If you’re visiting with children, here’s 10 things you can do on Moreton Island with kids.
10 things to do on Moreton Island with children
Here’s our ten favourite things to do on Moreton Island
1) Big Sandhills
Moreton Island has huge sand dunes. You can climb the dunes and ‘surf” down them!
2) Blue Lagoon Lake
You could hike around parts of the blue lagoon and finish up with a dip in its crystal clear waters.
3) Shark spit wreck
Down the beach from the Tangalooma wreck, lie more wrecks; Shark Spit wreck. You can discover the wrecks and the animals that live nearby.
There are starfish hiding in the shallow waters around the wreck, just remember to put them back in lots of water!
4) Kooringal Shore
Explore the shallow shoreline of Kooringal. This shoreline is perfect for kids as it’s constantly so shallow and calm. You could park up all day and spend time picnicking, relaxing, paddling and more here.
5) White rock whale skull
The beach of white rock is spectacular enough without the impending whale skull. It is magnificent to see and gives a whole new perspective on just how big whales are.
6) Rous Battery
Consider taking in a bit of WWII history with the Rous fortifications.
7) Cape Cliff
At the base of the lighthouse stand the volcanic rocks of Cape Cliff which are screaming out for little explorers to climb and jump.
8) Cape Moreton Lighthouse
You cannot visit Moreton Island with kids and NOT visit the lighthouse.
9) Champagne rocks
Probably one of our favourite things to do was watch the waves break over the rocks and run away screaming! The beach here has some waves perfect for body boarding.
10) Yellow Patch Beach Pools and Sand Banks
Yellow Patch is perfect for every member of the family. You can swim the sandy banks of Yellow Patch, jump in, snorkel or just relax on the beach.
Where do we recommend you stay?
You’ll need a 4×4 to stay down here as it’s a little off the beaten track but in our opinion, Kooringal is the least touristy area. If you stay down here you must keep an eye on the tide times as you cannot pass the Mirapool Lagoon at high tide!
We stayed at this HomeAway house in Kooringal. There are also homes for rent with AirBNB.
Do You Need To Rent A Car?
We always rent through RentalCars; they get us the best deals and I’ve never had a problem renting through them.
