Day 1: Brisbane or Gold Coast / Moreton Island
Depart Brisbane or Gold Coast this morning and transfer to the Tangalooma Launch Terminal at the Holt Street Wharf in Pinkenba, to connect with your ferry to the Tangalooma Jetty on Moreton Island. Cruise across Moreton Bay to Tangalooma Resort and after checking in, enjoy one of the many free activities available including squash, tennis or archery. An optional 4WD island tour (at your own expense) including sand tobogganing is also available this afternoon.
In the evening, participate in the Wild Dolphin program. Tangalooma is one of the few places in the world where you can hand feed wild dolphins. Each evening the Tangalooma inshore dolphins eagerly swim up the beach, adjacent to the well lit jetty, where they are rewarded with fresh fish hand fed to them by the Dolphin Care staff and resort guests. Whether you are actually participating in the feeding or simply watching from the jetty, you will be overwhelmed by these beautiful creatures. A truly unique experience.
Overnight Accommodation: Beachcomber Units (50 meters from the beach)
Day 2: Moreton Island / Brisbane (breakfast)
Enjoy a buffet breakfast this morning before relaxing around the resort or take advantage of the spectacular diving or snorkeling opportunities (at your own expense) available around the 'shipwrecks' nearby or swim in the crystal clear waters of the bay.
This afternoon, cruise by ferry back to Brisbane, where you will be transferred back to your Brisbane or Gold Coast accommodation.

PARADISE. The highlight was the dolphin feed, also lovedsand tobogganing but very tiring climbing up the sand dune and you end up with sand everywhere including your ears, nose and mouth! The Segway along the beach good fun also !

Resort was fantastic, too many things to do in the short time we were there. The dolphin feeding was very professionally run with extreme care given to the well being of the dolphins. Also manged to squeeze in the sand toboganing, four wheel tour and the sedgway ride, all personnel that ran the differnt tours were great.
