The next time you’re looking for a seaside adventure, Moreton Bay offers stacks for all ages. Conveniently positioned between Brisbane and Sunshine Coast, Moreton Bay Region has become known for its scenic views, water-based activities, playground for marine life, and it’s waiting for you to explore.

Moreton Bay Region – Is the place to see the whales

Between the months of June and November, Moreton Bay Region is the best place to go Whale Watching near Brisbane.

Moreton Bay plays host to one of Australia’s best marine life tours – Brisbane Whale Watching. Led by the only woman captain operating a whale watching venture in the South Pacific Rim – Captain Kerry – guests of Brisbane Whale Watching can witness magnificent humpback whales just 30 minutes north of Brisbane.

Brisbane Whale Watching’s multi-million dollar vessel, the “Eye-Spy” is the best way to explore Moreton Bay. Prepare yourself for a top-level sun deck and 360-degree walk around the upper and lower decks. It is also fitted with an underwater microphone to capture all the whales' songs and sounds.

But whales aren’t all you can expect to see on this iconic Moreton Bay tour. Keep your eyes peeled for sea turtles, dugongs, dolphins, sharks and fish, who all enjoy the waters of Moreton Bay.

Moreton Bay Region – Is the perfect fishing spot

Moreton Bay Region is well-known as a fisherman’s paradise. There are literally hundreds of spots you can drop a line in the water between Bribie Island and Bramble Bay. For a lazy day out in the sun, why not take a tackle box, pack some lunch, cast a line off the Wood Point and relax the hours away. If you haven’t experienced Moreton Bay Region on a perfect and breathless sunny day pop it on the bucket list.

For the more seasoned fisherman, there is 1,500km2 of water to explore in a boat to find your own hidden fishing spot. Moreton Bay Region has numerous boat charter and hire services available, however, you will need a boating license.

Moreton Bay Region – Is the place for a kayaking adventure

What makes Moreton Bay Region such a pleasure for kayakers is that no matter where you enter the water – be it Scarborough Point or Bribie Island – you are treated to sensational views that will keep you coming back.

Or if you prefer standing up, the still waters of Moreton Bay Region are also perfectly suited to the latest watersports craze – paddle boarding. Come and find out for yourself why paddle boarders are suddenly flocking to Moreton Bay Region to get their water fix.

For those who don’t have space at home to store their own kayak or paddleboard, there are multiple opportunities to hire them in and around the Moreton Bay Region.

But let’s be honest. You choose a sunset cruise on Moreton Bay Region for the view. Once you’re out on the water, looking back at the sun dropping below the horizon, you will be lost in paradise and be glad for it.
