We’re so lucky in Brisbane to be surrounded by so many amazing beaches, but Tangalooma Island Resort has to be my favourite place to head for the weekend.

Situated on Moreton Island and a 40-minute ferry ride from Brisbane, this little slice of heaven is somewhere that cannot be missed if you’re heading to Brisbane.

Tangalooma has arguably the best snorkelling in south-east Brisbane – I personally have spent hours exploring the ship wrecks located just off shore. If you’re not into snorkelling, there are a multitude of activities, like parasailing, ATVs and Segway tours – to name a few.

You can head there for a day trip, but I would highly recommend making a weekend out of it – guests that stay at the resort have a dolphin feeding experience included for one of the nights of their stays and it is such an amazing experience, everyone should do it once in their life!
