Certificate of Excellence
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 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!

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

Very handy and had all the necessary island resources. Friendliest staff on the island and amazing meals. We loved stopping in each time we passed through. Just remember to clean the sand off the feet and drive safely around the area ☺️

The staff are friendly and the facilities are very good. Might be a bit close for comfort in Summer though. Bring blankets and doona in winter as the tents get cold ! No heating unless you go to the firepit....
