    It looks like it's only the one resort on Morton Island but with the option of hotel rooms, separate double story Villas, beachfront Villas, suites etc, but all in close proximity to each other and all have access to the same amenities, should make it easy for singles couples and families to attend

    I've been to Moreton Island before, it's stunning! The wrecks are beautiful and there's also a camping sight very close to the resort.

    Agreed with the same hotel! or area of accomodation

    Sounds awesome! I'd love to come to this!
    Are box jellyfish a problem at that time of year? I remember going out to the Whitsundays when I was younger, and you couldn't swim in the ocean because of the jellyfish.

    Good point Kate, Not entirely sure, further near the Whitsundays have issues with Irukadnji (little nasty ones) in Nov -Dec I think but maybe this far South it will be ok

    Woah all of this happened really quickly from a facebook post to reality in two seconds flat! Haha. I've got to start saving!
    Are we still going to have Mer-fest elements? I would love to be able to share my story and facilitate something. Maybe even do art classes (Providing I can come). I guess I do get to meet you all and share it personally though so that will be great

    I put this on the Facebook page, and apparently it's okay on this island. Good because I'd hate for someone to get a poisonous jellyfish down their tail!

    @Mermaid Selene..for anyone coming to the event..not from Aus (me from New Zealand)...it's not a simple trip to pay for up front. I'd need to renew my passport book overseas flight, then hotel, transport etc on top :P
    So i'm a 'maybe' due to that.

    but if it's in QLD and it's not too hard to get to, I'll be there

    Kinda put the pressure on to finish my tail

    I am aware, but there's still a lot of time to save up, and things can be done in increments, pay for passport here, save up some more, pay for flights there, save up some more, accommodation down payment, and so on. I'm planning to go to Fiji this year in August and I've already started planning and saving, but I'm just really over organised that way.

    I want to come sooooooo bad. It's so expensive to fly there from the US but I am sooo homesick for QLD! I'll keep talking to my husband about it...money is really tight right now, and he'll be saving up all his vacation time for when his mum comes to visit this year, and I know that's really important to him. I wish it wasn't so bloody expensive to fly anywhere! I was bummed about missing NC Merfest but I will cry for the rest of my life if I miss this!

    Ohhhh my goodness this would be so amazing! Bit spensy because international travel bit I think I could make it work. Plus another incentive to get my tail finished doesn't hurt 😁
