While on moreton make sure you visit castaways general store. If you leave anything at home big chance you can get it here, but be prepared to pay extra. Had a great chicken parmi for a meal on Saturday night, worth the $20

We stayed at the Clamping Tents with a group. Fantastic accommodation and staff. We ate at the Cafe the food was excellent and the staff were brilliant. Couldn't help you enough. The home made chilli jam was delious. The tents had a ensuite plenty of room and comfy. Thanks Castaway for making the weekend .....

Every trip I make to #moretonisland I make it a point to visit Castaways for lunch. It makes the best hamburgers in the area I would have to say. Well done. I have had a look at the glamping rooms and they look great. Very affordable when compared to the cost of bringing my camper across to the island on...

Stopped by to have lunch with my friends and the food was amazing! It was very tasty, the portions are huge and it wasn't expensive as we expected. I had the chicken salad and it was delicious. Staff very friendly and the environment is very welcoming. Worth a visit!

Castaways is a great restaurant/cafe/shop at Bulwer on Moreton Island. The food is well priced and very well prepared and presented. After having the regular menu for the evening meal (which was delicious) we decided to have the family fish and chip platter for lunch the next day. There was more than 4 adults with a decent appetite could eat...

We loved our 3 nights glamping at Castaways. We found all staff very friendly and also gave good directions for Island sightseeing. The glamping is away from it all . Great place for ship spotting and observing dolphins at play. The tents are very comfortable and camp kitchen was well equipped and clean . We highly recommend a stay at...

After Southern Ocean Lodge last month this was always going to be a challenge but we had a new Jeep to test and always knew how Moreton Island was extra special, especially away from the crowded part. Well if you want a low effort break, this is it with boardies & thongs the go & frequent cold showers between beach...

Glamping on Moreton Island is a unique experience. We loved the "Glamp" kitchen which includes modern equipment and anything you need. A good way to see the real Moreton Island for the first time. A must do fory any adventurer.

The glamping tents are way too expensive. After all, even if it is more comfortable than a normal camping tent, it is still camping for the price of a good hotel... The tents and facilities are clean. The tap water is bore water, and smells like sewage.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay Marinep887. As you stayed during the high peak period I can understand why you feel they were more expensive but become more reasonable after the 30th Jan (The Australia Day Weekend). We often do specials for the tents combined with ferry transfers (up to 40% off) in the off peak...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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! ... more   less

“Handy to have repellant/ candle/coils on hand for the sand flies. Once inside the tent with full screens less of an issue. Beds were comfortable. Some small patches of mould up on the ceiling and around the edge of the shower from water leaks. Overall accomodation and facilities was good. Will return.”
