MICAT ferry to Moreton
It’s the ‘getting there’ in the ‘getting away from it all’ where so many holidays seem to go wrong. By the time you brave the crowds and the traffic, you’re more stressed than when you left. That’s where your Moreton Island Adventure couldn’t be more different.
A mere 20 min drive from Brissie, you can be onboard the MICAT and kicking back with a cold beer while some of those other ‘adventurers’ are still queuing for the toilet at roadside petrol stations with hours ahead of them.
We’ll have you driving or walking straight onto the white sandy beach in around 75 minutes from leaving port. And the best bit is it’s just as easy on the way back. Compared to some of the other islands we’re at least half the travel time, and that lets you double the fun. You do the math!
Once onboard the MICAT reduce your tyre pressure to suit the conditions expected. Many locals on Moreton Island lower their tyre pressure to around 18 psi, however all vehicles are different. The MICAT has four air hoses on the vehicle deck for your convenience. Feel free to ask the deckhands for assistance if you are unsure.
For walk-on passengers wishing to leave their vehicle in the secure carpark, please note that parking spaces are limited and subject to availability on the day of travel. Parking is $15 per day which can not be pre-booked and is payable on the day of travel. If no parking spaces are available we have street parking out the front of the terminal at no charge.
Please note that the Tangalooma Resort will not allow walk-on passengers to enter the resort without pre-booking a ‘Casual Day Visitor Pass’ prior to travel. For more information, to check availability or to book please visit the Tangalooma website by clicking here. If you are not able to obtain a day visitor pass from the resort make sure you bring drinking water and a picnic or you can purchase food and drinks onboard the MICAT on your trip over or whilst the ferry is docked on the island.
MICAT recommends pre-booking as vehicle spaces are limited and passengers arriving to book on the day of travel can not be guaranteed availability on the ferry.
