Moreton Island Adventure (UQ SAIL x QUEST x UQ Surfers)


Semester 2: 25th-27th September

Ahoy Sailors,

Get hyped because this is the big one!! No semester at UQ is complete without hitting Moreton island, so get ready for probably the best long weekend of your life!! It is an awesome weekend of camping, sailing, swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, and partying!

So, The details!

We will be setting sail to Moreton Island on Sunday the 25th of September. You’ll catch the short ferry across Moreton Bay to the calm and secluded paradise that is the Wrecks at Moreton. Sail and explore the island on your own terms, surf the nearby sand dunes, snorkel the wrecks, and don’t forget to join the rest of the crew for a sunset beach party! Then, we head back to Brisbane returning on Tuesday the 27th.

FYI you don’t need to know how to sail to go out on a boat! This trip is for ALL sailing experience levels! We will be taking turns sailing off the beach, and every boat comes with an experienced skipper!

We will be getting the ferry from the Port of Brisbane at 8 am on Sunday, returning to Brisbane around 1 pm on Tuesday. From the port, we will be catching the ferry over to Tangalooma Wrecks. Stay tuned on your ticket for the exact pickup spot!

If you have not already done so in the past, you must complete a swim assessment before attending the event. You can do so for free at the UQ pool on any Tuesday or Thursday between 10am-12pm or on any Sunday between 1pm – 2pm. This is a compulsory requirement for all UQ water sports, and requires you to swim 400m (untimed) and tred water for 2 minutes supervised by a lifeguard. Please be aware, if you have not done the swim assessment, you are not allowed to sail. Once you have completed it, please provide your details here:

Make sure you fill out your dietary requirements when checking out.

A confirmation email with further details will be sent out closer to the weekend.

No experience is necessary we have experienced skippers who attend and are more than happy to show you the ropes.
