Moreton Island Maps

Moreton Island is made up of 98% National Park. Located 58km North East from Brisbane, Bulwer, Cowan Cowan and Kooringal make up the three main townships on Moreton Island. Cowan was home to soldiers in WW2 and many artefacts and relics remain; it's absolutely worth the time exploring. Bulwer is a small township on the NW coast of Moreton Island and has a helipad, first-aid station, general store and garage. You can find these three towns on the Moreton Island map below.

Queensland's oldest working light house is found at Cape Moreton at the northern end of the island. Built in 1857 it is also Queensland's first light house. Mount Tempest is the highest point of the island and could well be the highest coastal sand hill in the world. It's also a favourite point for sandboarders.

Moreton Island is the second largest sand island in the world. As you can see from the maps, Ferry's departing Redcliffe will drop passengers off at the Bulwer jetty. Visitors departing from Pinkenba in Brisbane will be taken to Tangalooma where ample accommodation awaits.

While Moreton Island is relatively small, it's still considered worthwhile to bring a vehicle along. Due to its sandy nature, make sure you have a 4WD to avoid getting stuck. There are some great 4WD tracks on the island and spectacular camping spots best accessed by car.

The Tangalooma Wrecks can be found walking distance from the Tangalooma jetty, while Curtin Artificial Reef is close by. Dolphin feeding takes place at Tangalooma jetty every evening. Shops and restaurants are found in the townships of Cowen Cowen and Bulwer.
