Things To Do
Just 25km off Brisbane’s shore is the third largest sand island in the world. Crystal-clear lakes and lagoons exist among tall sand dunes, abundant wildflowers and pristine beaches. After you have handfed wild dolphins under the stars, organise a trip to dive or snorkel among the mysterious wrecks and pristine waters. The adventurous can try quad biking, four-wheel-driving or sand tobogganing before slipping into a lazy dream on the cooling beach, or watching the silhouettes of fishermen as they cast their lines into the surf in lingering twilight.
Nestled among the giant melaleuca trees with pristine beaches just metres from your door, Glamping at Castaways offers the best of camping minus the sandy bed.
