Introduction of Moreton Island

Moreton Island is located off the southeast coast of Queensland, across Morton Bay (Moreton Bay) and Queensland capital Brisbane, covering an area of about 171km2, is the third largest sand island in the world.

The sand dunes on Moreton Island are fixed by vegetation, with Queensland's first lighthouse (1857) and ferry Brisbane, sailing for about 70 minutes. Because there are a group of wild dolphins waiting for tourists to arrive on the island every evening, the island is shaped like a wide-kissed dolphin, so it is affectionately called Dolphin Island.

Moreton Island, the silver sand pavement, brown shadow, won the honor of``Australia’s most pure beach'' in 2006. Intelligent dolphins, giant whales and many other marine life, are happy to live in this beautiful extra-world. The Temple mountain on the island is 278 meters, the world's highest sand dune.

Moreton Island is best known for the wild dolphins who have been eating and drinking every day for decades. Every evening, the guys would swim to the shore of wharf, waiting for visitors to feed, 365 days of unhindered, sometimes early feeding has not yet begun, they will be quietly on the side or play or quietly wait patiently. When it comes to feeding time, managers will ask tourists to queue up and go into the water in turn. Obviously, many people are so excited that they are so close to dolphins for the first time, but in order to protect dolphins, please do not touch them with your hands. A dolphin is a very clever and kind animal. When you walk into it, it begins to communicate with you with its eyes, sometimes rub its mouth against your feet to show friendship, and occasionally it even raises its head out of the water and smiles at you. At that moment, your heart immediately changes.

Reviews of Moreton Island

     
到达摩顿岛的时候快到中午了,艳阳高照,海水格外的蓝,码头边站着一大堆不知名的鸟,乍一看它们一动不动,还以为是一群假鸟。即使现在是澳大利亚的深秋,但是岛上一点也不觉得寒冷,一回到酒店,就换上了夏天的衣服。而且莫顿岛的日落据说非常有名。之后在排队喂野生海豚时,发现在岸边有一个打卡的板子,每一个海豚都有一个名字,每天上岸的就打个卡。海豚微微抬头吃掉你手里的鱼,真正面对海豚的时候,你能感觉它真的像一个小精灵,暗中感觉无法用言语描述,真的很推荐大家在岛上住一晚,喂喂海豚。摩顿岛的夜真安静啊,安静到只能听到海的声音,在阳台上打了一会麻将,几个人突发奇想决定去码头夜钓。虽然啥也没有钓到,但是能依稀看到几只海豚在码头的附近游来游去,也算是奇妙的体验。大家上岛的话一定要带足干粮,岛上没有什么吃的店子,关门也关的很早,如果想彻夜长谈什么的,就会饥肠辘辘。
