Ok, none of us signed up to this, but here we are. First there was Covid, then home schooling, then we hit the christmas holidays with mandates, then there is back to school.
No wonder everyone is exhausted!!!!!

So this one is for the girls. Glamping Island Style.
Each day we enjoy a leisurely drive to each of the Islands attractions, The lighthouse, The oyster farm, The Gutter bar,
Think of a holiday on Gilligans Island, only everything is provided and you will be rescued, eventually 🙂
There is swimming with the Dolphins, all facilities at Tangalooma are to enjoy.
Nights vary between camp fires and restaurants.
It is all about the girls getting some recharge time, Girl time and remembering why we enjoy this journey of life so much.
Don’t have a 4WD, we can assist with this.
Plans for this have deliberately been kept a bit lose, so we can tailor the trip to you, your tribe.

From here we go to the Lighthouse on Cape Moreton, You will enjoy Whale watching, Doplhins, turtles and other wild life, of course we are not in control of them, but season in, season out, they always entertain. 

Depending on your choice of accommodation, Airbnb, Tangalooma resort or Glamping with us, you can enjoy a campfire, the most amazing sunsets, a beautiful meal, camp oven cooking or vegetarian, (always better when you are not cooking)  and then we crank out the guitar, enjoy stories and songs around the first and share laughter and good stories. 

Day 2 

This is Nature day!

Breakfast island style, be it a fruit and tropical or BBQ, Fresh Coffee, tea. It is all brewed in a way that makes Italians envious. 

We explore more of the interior of the Island, with the Tempest Sandciffs (the highest sand hill in the world with views to match, and body boards to give us some action. Harpers Rock and exploring the walking trails, and that nature has catered for, others can choose between lakes, oceans or just lazing about

The Marine life again is the order of the day, with the wetlands, Dugongs, turtles and other marine life as we explore the wetlands

Our afternoon takes us on a trip to the Oysterfarm and then Gutter bar for afternoon drinks, and really sets the Island vibe in place. 

The night can finish with either a delcious meal at the restaruant within Tangalooma Resort, or another of our outdoor food fests on the beach view with a sunset. Please let us know during booking your preferences.
