Again a few days spent glamping on the Island, which has no electricity, being reliant on self generated deisel power, was made so easy due to the staff at Castaways. Always inspired to pay extra to keep the business going, so I can keep returning...More

Visited the shop recently which I hardly ever do due to the outrageous costs of the goods. The outside area was terribly dirty and really needs a good gerni to remove all the stains from the area. Not an inviting place to eat.

Definitely recommend upgrading to the Glamping option rather than the dormitory if you're staying at Castaways. The beds were comfortable and blankets cosy when it got cold overnight. The ensuite had a shower and toilet that were clean and very welcome after a busy day...More

Great food and very generous serving sizes. Very relaxed atmosphere, you can pick up some supplies, have a decent meal or sit back and enjoy a cold drink or ice cream. There is a small bottle store also available, but you do pay high prices...More

We were on a 4WD Experience with Motorama Mitsubishi who booked a night for us at Castaways. The Glamping Tent was really good - clean, comfy bed and nice bathroom. Castaways supplied wraps for lunch both days - excellent fresh. Their brownies are sensational. We...More

About
Description
If you love the idea of getting out into the great outdoors but can't stand the creepy crawlies, sandy bed or thought of needing a shovel to go to the toilet, glamping's probably the answer! We've got 9 More beautifully furnished tents, complete with a queen size bed, private ensuite and veranda overlooking the giant Moreton Melaleuca trees. When you're glamping, there's no tent to pitch, no sleeping bag to unroll, no fire to build! Glamping is a way to experience the great outdoors without sacrificing luxury. The beach is just a short stroll from your front door (well, tent flap), you can grab a meal at the on-site cafe, cook on the communal barbie in the camp kitchen or just put your feet up and enjoy a glass of wine knowing you're not facing another night of sleeping on a half inflated blow-up! We have a mixture of 2 person and 4 person tents nestled amongst the giant Melaleuca trees of Moreton Island, with pristine beaches 100 metres from your door. A Glamp kitchen is also available for our guests to use, including tea & coffee making facilities & Barbeques. If you are bringing your own 4WD vehicle, Bulwer is a short drive to the Cape Moreton Lighthouse (see the whales in season)Champagne Rock Pools and Honeymoon Bay, which are some of the most spectacular sights on the Island. No 4wd? No problem, we can arrange on Island tours that include snorkelling amongst amazing amounts of beautiful fish at the wrecks and sandboarding down massive sand dunes. Castaways has an on-site restaurant so you'll never go hungry as well as a convenience store for all your holiday essentials. Moreton Island is a secret holiday paradise! Less
