Good place with bad food
Moreton island is a beautiful place, with many wild life and good sceneries. However, the service provided by the resort did not match with the place. The food varieties provided are not good and more importantly, food qualities were bad. For visitors want to visit the place, I would advise you to buy food in for cooking by yourselves, which I bought food in the resort and cooked by ourselves. If you would like to feed dolphin, a day tour may be a better choice.
