P&O's Latest Domestic Paradise

Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 |
P&O has a new destination, and it's only 35 kilometres from Brisbane! Now incorporated in a number of short break cruises on the Pacific Jewel from Sydney will be Moreton Island off the Queensland coast, providing a bit of onshore fun in what are otherwise sea-only excursions.

Moreton is the world's thrid largest sand island, and 95% of it is a National Park. Although there are a small number of residents, most who land on the island are day trippers who come to enjoy the park and take part in the recreational activities offered on the island. These include hiking, 4 wheel driving, snorkelling, diving, whale watching and attending the feeding program for wild dolphins at the resort of Tangalooma.

Cruise passengers will have access to these activities and more, and will have the opportunity to hand feed wild bottlenose dolphins! The champagne pools near Honeymoon Bay are predicted to be popular amongst cruisers- natural pools formed amongst the rocks at the northeastern tip of the island. The ship will moor in the morning and depart after the evening dolphin feeding, allowing a full day of fun in the sun.
