There have been some changes at Moreton over time, and since it is now very much whale watching season, I thought I should mention Cape Moreton. These pictures show our truck/s delivering the diesel to Cape Moreton Lighthouse, a precarious position for diesel tanks, and a challenging job that we no longer have to do. This is because the lighthouse is now solar-powered.
The tanks were removed where a picnic table now sits and a new walking path was installed. Now it is a fantastic spot to take your binoculars and watch the whales play. The water under the Cape is so full of life that we usually see dolphins, turtles, the ocassional shark and different sorts of fish playing in the waves near the rocks. It's a great way to see the whales playing - no sea sickness!
We are actually starting to do tours for whale watching this year to Cape Moreton - no 4WD needed. We are also starting some tag-a-long tours this year, where you take your own 4WD and follow along behind our guide. This takes you to the Cape to see the whales, along with some yummy food and champagne. I go to go on the first day and it was simply fantastic. The day went so quickly, ending up at Castaways for a great lunch - it gave me a new perspective on the Island and how much fun it can be just for a day.
