When making a trip to ‘the land of Down Under’, Tangalooma Island is a MUST go to. Hands down, you will regret it if you go there and do not be part of the experience of this island. Nature and the sights are good enough to give you the sense of being one with nature. Sitting about a 75-minute catamaran cruise from Brisbane, Australia, this place is one of the places that you have to see. It does not matter if you are travelling solo or travelling with family as I was.
If you are a nature lover, like my family and I are, you will certainly be mesmerized by the sheer beauty of this soothing island. Whether it is to relax in the exotic sandy beaches or enjoy a dip in the crystal clear ocean this island will offer everything. Well, if that was not convincing enough, you get to get up, close, and personal with one of the most beautiful and friendly creatures on earth – the dolphins.
There are multiple experiences that you have on an average day, but this has to be the most special one. We took the catamaran (though informed from Google) not knowing what to expect. But here we were in the most breathtaking view ever seen by us. Seamless travel to the island was one of our main highlights. After that, nature we witnesses was surpassed none we have ever.
There are some things that contribute to the making of a great trip:
As far as Tangalooma goes, all of the boxes were checked according to me and my family. We saw the most amazing hospitality with kind people being extremely accommodating of our needs.
The first thing that strikes you about this place, dare I say, is that the view is breathtaking. The beautiful ocean is something you cannot get enough of. The beaches, the crystal clear ocean, the parks, everything about this place will be worth every penny you spent on this trip.
There are a host of things that you can do here that are unlike any other. It has something for everyone. One of their highlights is to get up close and personal with dolphins that come to be fed every evening. Additionally, you can go snorkelling and explore the ocean. If you are the kind that just likes to relax and absorb the universe around you, watch the ocean, go for walks on the beach, or just find yourself a nice spot and engulf yourself in the view.
As a person that loves to travel, I know I often say that this experience is like none other. This is because different places bring with it different kinds of experiences, the people, the sights, the weather. Having said that, this is certainly one of those places that I absolutely recommend. If you have the money, the will to travel, and really want to experience something spectacular, Tangalooma Island is the place you should head towards. I would go as far as to say, this was one of my best experiences in all my travels and certainly in Australia. I would recommend, if you have the opportunity, take the time to go here and you will not regret it. Instead, try and make the opportunity to go here and get revitalized and rejuvenated.
