Seaworld Dr, Main Beach QLD 4217, Australia
Everyone's buzzing about the baby polar bear cub that was born at Sea World recently, but I'm way more fascinated by the penguins. The multi-level exhibit lets you watch them swim in the tank and waddle around up on the ice and I could literally...
Save Place
Moreton Island, Queensland, Australia
The most beautiful beach I have ever seen is Eastern Beach on Moreton Island. You'll need a 4WD (or a tour) to get around the island, but it's worth the effort. When we visited, we were the only ones standing on this expansive sandy beach fringed...
Save Place
Mooloolaba Beach, Queensland, Australia
I loved island hopping and beach crawling through Europe, but couldn't wait to get home to the beautiful, spacious white sandy beaches back home in Australia which I've taken for granted. It's a little more 'crowded'* in the patrolled areas...
Save Place
On the northern tip of Moreton Island, near the original lighthouse is the beautiful Honeymoon Bay. We only had a short stop on our way to Blue Lagoon, but I wish we'd stayed longer. Luckily, there is no shortage of idyllic beaches on Moreton...
Save Place

This was the most amazing wildlife experience I've ever had! Hervey Bay on the Fraser Coast is well-known for whale watching, but this was the first time I'd heard of whale watching in Moreton Bay, departing from Redcliffe - just 30 minutes from...
Save Place
Point Lookout QLD 4183, Australia
Point Lookout on Stradbroke Island is the perfect place to take a dip in the waves, bliss out on the beach and tune in to island time. Enjoy this view from the Surf Life Saving Club over lunch or chill out on the beach before wandering down the...
Save Place
North Stradbroke Island, Queensland 4183, Australia
Squeezed in on Ipanema? Fought for beach real estate on Bondi? Stretch out on Cylinder Beach on Stradbroke Island. Just a short walk down the beach from Allure Resort is the pristine Cylinder Beach. Ten minutes down the road from the main part of...
Save Place
Take the short timber trail between beaches on Cylinder Beach for stunning views of the Stradbroke Island coast. Read more about Stradbroke Island on my blog, The Wanderbug.
