RouteTangalooma - Western Beach - Little Sandhills (N1) - Mirapool - Rous Battery - Eagers Creek - [Honeyeater Lake - Blue Lagoon Circuit side trip] - Blue Lagoon (N2) - Cape Moreton - Northern Beach - Bulwer - Tangalooma (Wrecks)
NotesAlthough not an immediately obvious place to cycle, with the correct tide, most of the circumference of Moreton Island has sand firm enough to cycle along. It's also possible to carry bicycles and camping gear across the Little Sandhills. Worthwhile walking side trips include Cape Moreton, Mirapool Lagoon and a circuit from the Blue Lagoon camping area to the beach and then along the vehicle track to Honeyeater Lake. This circuit can be completed with a thigh-high wade around the edge of the Blue Lagoon.
