Your Remote Island Adventure Awaits!
What to expect..
You are left to "survive" on the island for with only a handful of fellow thrill seekers and an array of native wildlife. The hard work is already done for you with roomy camp tents already setup, mattresses, solar lights, usb power, camp kitchen, eskies and a long-drop toilet. With only a camp supervisor to ensure the smooth running of the tour, there is no-one planning your stay or looking after you...you are free to do as you please and are responsible for your own safety and your own fun! If you're expecting a resort, you'll be disappointed, because all you'll find is the ULTIMATE Aussie adventure, nature at it's best and you're chance to live like a Survivor
The 1770 Castaway was an awesome experience! Everybody had a really good time on the island and I really want to go back some time.
Serge is an amazing guide and he totally knows the island inside out – including the wild animals that are like pets to him.
As this tour is self-guided you are totally free to do what ever you want to do. However Serge has always some good ideas and tips for your time on the island – he showed us e.g. how to fish and how to open oysters that are growing in that area. But if you rather want to lay in a hammock the whole day it’s fine, too!
All in all I would recommend this tour to everybody who doesn’t need an all-inclusive hotel, but is up for some adventures ‘far away from civilisation’ I think it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most people and it’s absolutely worth the money!
A big thank you to Serge and Sue!
P.s. if you like to party bring enough goon – Serge knows a whole lot of funny drinking games
