Guest Post – Must-Do Activities for a Memorable Family Vacation at Tangalooma
Instead of staying at home, going on family holidays can be a great opportunity to spend quality time with loved ones. However, it is important to ensure each family member – especially the kids – can enjoy the entire stay. Fortunately, there are many exciting and child-friendly activities available at the world-famous Tangalooma, a town situated on the western side of the Moreton Island known for their crystal clear waters and thrilling amenities. Some ideas to make the trip the best out-of-town voyage ever includes:
Tobogganing – In Tangalooma, you can experience the popular toboganning. The activity is similar to sledding, but instead of sliding down on an icy slope, you will be gliding down on sand. You will lie on top of a wooden toboggan and hold onto the planks, travelling in high speed. When you reach the bottom of the hill, you can walk up to the starting point and experience the thrilling adventure again.
Educational tour – Bring your entire family at Tangalooma Marine Education and Conservation Centre (TMECC) to learn more about the rich marine and ecological life at Moreton Island. During the tour, you can meet local marine biologist and even watch whales migrate.
Dolphin feeding – A trip to Tangalooma wouldn’t be complete if you haven’t met and fed the dolphins. The popular attraction allows you to get up close and personal with the friendly bottlenose dolphins who frequently visit the shores. Be sure to wear a swimsuit as you will need to walk into deep water.
ATV Quad Bike Tour – Marvel at the beautiful surroundings while riding on an ATV vehicle. Although the trail can be challenging for some, you don’t need to worry as the guide will provide basic training beforehand.
Outdoor water activities – Since Tangalooma is blessed with a rich marine life and crystal clear waters, it is the ideal destination for outdoor water activities such as snorkeling, kayaking and banana boat ride. There is also a spectacular dive site wherein you can see different species of fish, corals and urchins.
Aerial view – What’s the best way to appreciate Tangalooma’s beauty? Go on a scenic helicopter flight which offers an aerial view of the destinations’ natural wonders and attractions. Depending on your chosen itinerary, you can explore Tangalooma and Moreton Island for six minutes up to half an hour.
Beach-side sports – Apart from exhilarating activities, your family can play a game of volleyball at the island’s beautiful white beach. Basketball, cricket and badminton are also available for guests.
Choosing a destination for the whole family to enjoy may seem an impossible task. However, a memorable family vacation with your kids can be possible. Be sure to choose a destination like Tangalooma as they offer a myriad of activities safe for each family member!
