Moreton Bay/Australia

Introducing Moreton Bay

The clear waters of Moreton Bay stretch 125km from Caloundra to the Gold Coast and are sprinkled with some 365 islands – one for every day of the year. The bay is separated from the Pacific Ocean by four sand islands: Moreton Island and Bribie Island to the north, and North and South Stradbroke Islands towards the south. It’s a beautiful area that’s home to some of Queensland’s highlights and a great diversity of marine life, including the increasingly rare dugong. The two most visited islands are Moreton Island, where folk head to feed the dolphins, dive colourful wrecks and indulge in 4WD adventures, and North Stradbroke Island, which is home to some good surf, stunning beaches and designer holiday homes.
