Blue Lagoon Safari Tour

Thursday, March 13th, 2008

This unique guided 4W.D. tour takes you to the crystal clear waters of the Blue Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon is located south of the Cape Moreton lighthouse on the eastern side of Moreton Island. The lake covers 42 hectares and is the largest freshwater lake on the island. Originally it was created by the gradual sand dune movement which over time formed the catchment. It is actually called a “window lake” as the underwater table is at the surface. It is not fed by water from rivers or streams but by underground aquifers. There is an estimated 2.5thousand million cubic meters of water stored here.

The tour by 4 W.D. bus travels along the beach from the Tangalooma Resort to the Wrecks. It then turns towards the Eastern beach using the 7k’s of middle road. Our guide offers pleasant commentary on the islands flora and fauna. Once we arrive at our destination it is a short walk on the squeaky clean sand to the beckoning crystal clear waters of theBlue Lagoon. Along the path you can see much of the islands local flora, such as the low brush box, coastal banksia, and sheoaks. The sight of this beautiful lake is breathtaking with it’s crystal clear blue water. The water laps the freshwater sedge which grow along the edge and there are many small birds darting amongst the bushes. This is a tranquil scene indeed. While you enjoy a relaxing swim your tour guide prepares a scrumptious snack of damper and tea and coffee. Swimming here is so relaxing and refreshing.
