This product is only available to RedBalloon customers
Your adventure begins with a scenic plane ride over gorgeous waterways and bushland; you'll get to see this magical region with a bird's eye view. Be amazed by a virtually untouched tropical paradise that will be yours to roam free over the next three days. You'll be dropped off onto the island and your small group will be left with only a bushman guide to watch over you.
The camps are already set up for you when you arrive; a fully equipped kitchen, solar lights, usb chargers, mattresses and yes, a toilet are there for you to use, so you're not completely roughing it. There's plenty of activities to keep you occupied; explore caves, swim, snorkel, find oysters and hike to nearby Bustard Head, Pancake Creek or Jenny Lind Creek. The Castaway trip has less activities than the Survivor package, so it's best suited to adventurers who rather be left to their own devices to explore, bushwalk and swim. Not for those who prefer luxury holidays, this camping trip will allow you to get up close to native wildlife and untouched natural beauty.
After a long day of enjoying the beach and bush, you'll sit around the campfire to eat dinner together. While doling out bowls of stew, you'll trade stories with your new friends and gaze at the stars. As the night gets darker you can sing songs around the fire. For an additional cost of $10 per person, you'll enjoy a Welcome Back BBQ, so you can say your last goodbyes to your new friends and enjoy one last meal together.
