Moretoninsel

Moreton Island is a large sand island located off the coast of South East Queensland, Australia. It is the third largest sand island in the world, and the largest in Australia, spanning over 186 square kilometres. It is located in the Moreton Bay Marine Park, which is a protected area.

Moreton Island is surrounded by crystal clear waters and is home to an abundance of wildlife, including dolphins, turtles, and seabirds. The island is also a popular destination for tourists, with activities such as swimming, fishing, and sand tobogganing available.

The island has a rich history, with Aboriginal people inhabiting it for thousands of years prior to European settlement. In 1823, the first permanent settlement was established on the island. During World War II, the island was used as a military base, and the remains of the fortifications can still be seen today.

Moreton Island also has a unique geographical feature known as the ‘Tangalooma Wrecks’. This is a collection of fifteen ships that were deliberately sunk off the coast of the island in 1963 to create an artificial reef and breakwater. The wrecks are now a popular dive site and have become home to a variety of marine life.

Moreton Island is a beautiful and diverse destination, offering something for everyone. From its stunning beaches and abundant wildlife to its rich history and unique geographical features, it is a must-see for any traveller to Australia.
