Chilling out at Tangalooma, Moreton Island
We arrived at Tangalooma on the west side of Moreton Island on Saturday morning after an overnight passage from the Gold Coast around Cape Moreton. The area where we anchored for the first night was behind some old barges, which had been scuttled in the 1960's to provide some shelter from west winds. This wasn't particularly effective but we were sheltered enough from south east winds.
On Saturday evening we had dinner onboard Nirvana with Julian and Julia, which was very pleasant on their spacious catamaran.
For the second two nights we anchored a bit further south just off the beach. Jonny enjoyed the fishing, catching lots of flatheads but none of them big enough to keep. We also got the dinghy out and went ashore for some nice walks on the beach. There is a resort at Tangalooma but they were thoroughly unhelpful when we attempted to spend our money there, insisting that we had to book at least one day before. Their loss!
