Moreton Island Day Trip

Today we travelled as a group to Moreton Island. This full day excursion took us to the world’s third largest sand island. It was just a short ferry ride from Brisbane. First, we snorkelled around the Tangalooma Shipwrecks. This is a collection of 15 vessels that were deliberately sunk to form a protective break wall for small ships stopping at the island. Clear waters allowed for us to have wonderful visibility to see a wide array of marine life and coral. We then were given transparent kayaks. Yes, they were see-through. We were able to see fish swimming all around us as we kayaked around the shipwrecks.

After a delicious lunch, we took a bus up into the desert area of the island. Students were able to surf down high sand dunes on a board. There were mixed reactions to this wild ride, as it was important to keep mouths and eyes closed so as not to ingest too much sand on the ride down.

Students arrived back at the bus hot and thirsty with lots of tales to tell about their adventure with the boards. It was beautiful scenery and the drive into the desert was an adventure onto itself. The Australian bush that we drove through had just been on fire and most vegetation had been destroyed by fire six weeks ago. We all arrived back at the hotel tired and hungry, and definitely ready for a warm shower to remove all of the sand. Everyone was tired, but definitely positive about their great day!
