We had Rio as our tour guide and he was amazing. The tour was so worth it. Brown Lake is a natural delight, Cylinder beach is beautiful (I recommend BYO lunch as we had to wait a long time for our lunch here) and the walk at point lookout was fabulous. Highly recommend for an accesible and not exhausting day trip.

Amazing moment with the Team, which is helpful, funnyand experienced. We've spent a wonderful journey on Moreton Island snorkeling, kayaking and sansboarding. By the way if you're doing sandboarding wear socks or shoes cause the sand is really hot on sunny days Thank you very much Sunset safari
