Much to the delight of the people visiting Brisbane, capital of the state of Queensland in Australia, there is a beautiful sand island right within the city limits. Even if you are there for work you can always squeeze in a day tour and enjoy this natural paradise which is rightly known as the ‘Gem of Southeast Queensland’. Initially Moreton Island was just an easy gateway for those living in and around the city but now this has become a major tourist hub with a large number of people visiting the place on a daily basis. Located on the eastern side of the Moreton Bay this island is just 58 miles from Brisbane and a ferry ride of less than 2 hours can take you here. Visiting the island not only lets you see the beauty and natural attractions but takes you back in time as it is steeped in history. Thousands years back Moreton Island was home of the Ngugi tribes and today the shell middens here bear testimony to this. Later it was Captain James Cook followed by Matthew Flinders who discovered the island and today visiting this island has become a must do activity for both the domestic tourists and the visitors from across the globe.
