Looking for a day trip escape? Your North Brisbane wildlife experience starts on the waters of Moreton Bay, home to some of Australia’s most iconic sea life. Escape the hectic city life and reconnect with nature on a day trip to Tangalooma Island Resort. Head out on the bay and meet the graceful giants migrating north through the region – the stunning humpback whales! You’ll head back to shore and relax before watching the wild Tangalooma dolphin feeding. Australian sea life doesn’t get more playful!

Your Daytime Experience: Whale Watching Tour

Each year between June and October, over 18,000 humpback whales visit the warmer waters of Moreton Bay Region. These majestic animals migrate north from Antarctica each year, travelling over 10,000 kilometres to the Great Barrier Reef to breed. Of the 80,000 humpback whales worldwide that have fought back from the edge of extinction, Australia’s favourite is the white whale Migaloo who passes through Moreton Bay Region each year.

The Whale Watching tour provides educational eco commentary to teach you about the lifestyles and habits of humpback whales. Learn about the massive effort behind whale conservation, and how their presence impacts the local ecosystem. You’ll also spot other Moreton Bay sea life, such as dugongs, rays, and turtles. With guaranteed whale sightings, there’s no better way to meet these temporary locals to Moreton Island! Book this unique adventure for yourself now!

Your Night-time Experience: Dolphin Viewing

Anyone who has visited will know that Tangalooma is home to a family of wild bottlenose dolphins all year round, known for coming into the shallows next to the pier for feeding each night. You can watch these charming animals swim and play together as the sun goes down, each with their own unique personality and quirks. These gentle creatures are visible from the stands of the Tangalooma pier, where you’ll be perfectly placed to see them swim in to be hand-fed by guests and staff. Tangalooma Island Resort’s staff will tell you all about these friendly locals and where they make their home in the Moreton Bay Region ecosystem. Secure yourself a memorable experience by booking now!
