Recently there were changes to the way Moreton Island Vehicle and Camping Permits are booked. Bookings are no longer placed via the Queensland Parks and Wildlife website, but instead through the new website especially setup for Moreton Island camping – or as the island is now called – Mulgumpin (more on the name change below)
Moreton Island native title handover
Recently the native title was handed over to Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation and with that a name change was brought about.
The island is still accessible and really not much has changed except for how bookings are managed.
You can still enjoy the following on Mulgumpin
- Camping and four-wheel drive tracks are open and accessible.
- Camping and vehicle access permits continue to be readily available, and existing fees will still apply.
- Existing camping and vehicle access permits are still valid. Bookings can still be made for the future and will apply regardless of any potential change to management arrangements.
- Beach access is not affected by the native title claim.
