We were camping near the Blue Lagoon at Moreton Island from December 31, 2016 to January 6, 2017. From time to time we stopped at Castaways cafe for a lunch or dinner. I was impressed by the local cuisine. Surprisingly, it was very tasty. The portions are quite large. We ordered two servings for three of us and it was... More

Awesome people!!! we turned up 15mins after closing time and they still let us in to buy ice and ice creams. Nox the very friendly dog that was outside was also a legend! Such a good boy, wanted to take him back to my campsite.

My husband and I camped on Moreton for 2 nights and were disappointed to find out that we couldn't go into Tangalooma resort to eat like we had in the past. It worked out for the best though as we searched for other places on Moreton and found this cafe. I had the best chicken salad I think I've ever... More

If you're on Moreton & equipped with a 4WD the trip Bulwer &?Castaways is worth it. There's snorkelling, fishing and all manner of activities and the food at Castaways is probably the best on the Island. My kids enjoyed the schnitzel, chips and salads and I was delighted to find there were tempting offers for hubby and I too. The... More

This is basically the only general store on Moreton, so expect to pay a bit extra for your general needs. However it is a great place to eat, catering for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The options available are suitable for vegetarians and gf, and non fried food. The service is good but the food was special. Well worth a visit.
