One of Australia’s great appeals is surely the combination of its exciting cities and pristine wilderness right at your doorstep. Case in point: Moreton Island. Just 25 miles from Brisbane and easily reached by ferry or 15-minute flight, the island offers opportunities to hike, bike, bird watch, or simply sit on one of its many white-sand beaches. At the end of the day, Shelby will make sure that you get back to Brisbane in time for cocktails in the funky West End and dinner in South Bank before you return to your hotel for the night, Spicers Balfour.
