Moreton Island Pacific Jewel

P&O Australia - Pioneering New Destinations

Posted May 24th, 2013

Recently, Cruiseabout's National Marketing Manager, Monique Van Gelder, joined P&O Australia at the launch of their first cruise to the beautiful Moreton Island. Here is what she had to say about the experience:

P&O Australia continue to evolve their itineraries with new & exciting destinations. Just recently they had their first cruise to Moreton Island off the coast of Brisbane.  P&O passengers were tendered into the island resort Tangalooma, which is an established resort that for that day went above & beyond to host the new P&O day guests with a fiesta style atmosphere.

P&O Australia's First Cruise to Moreton Island

Having spent the day on the island before the ship arrived I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of activities the island had to offer from nature walks, snorkelling & dolphin feeding to adrenalin fuelled quad bike riding through the sand dunes.  There are a huge variety of activities to choose from which I have included below.

This destination  has it all & until now has been a well kept secret even for some Brisbane residents, like me, who only realised how much this island paradise has to offer on my recent visit.

  • Wild Dolphin Feeding
  • Cape Moreton Northern Explorer
  • Island Safari Spectacular
  • Moreton Bay Oyster Farm
  • Moreton Bay Aquatic Marine Park Cruise
  • ATV Quad Bike Adventure
  • Snorkelling Tour of the Wrecks
  • Tangalooma Parasail
  • Moreton Bay Heli Adventure
  • Segway Safari
  • Dune Adventure
