Like the well known Tangalooma Wrecks to the South of them, Bulwer Wrecks harbour a surprising amount of marine life within a very small area. Originally placed to allow for supplies to be delivered to Bulwer, sand has now built up around the wrecks leaving a shallow area ideal for safe family snorkelling.

Although access to Bulwer requires 4x4 driving along the island's beaches (Barge transfers to Moreton Island can be booked at www.micat.com.au), the area is well resourced with both a National Park's campsite and holiday homes for rent in Bulwer town. The town also has a small shop, restaurant and petrol available for purchase.

In all, Bulwer offers a quiet alternative to the busier Tangalooma to the south, while still providing all the facilities for an easy family weekend away. The protected snorkelling, pristine beaches and easily accessible accommodation for all types of holiday makers mean that those travelling from both Brisbane and further afield can enjoy the opportunity for a break away from the pressures of every day life, without giving up the comforts.
