Moore Park Beach Attractions & Events

Queensland is full of natural beauty so it’s understandable that many destinations have become popular over the years and have started to feel a bit crowded and commercialised. If you’re up for a scenic drive off the beaten path, head over to Moore Park Beach. It’s the unspoilt paradise you’ve been waiting for that brings to mind Rainbow Beach and other gorgeous regional beaches in years gone by.

Whether you’re planning a family getaway, business trip or romantic weekend, our motel offers the perfect location!
