Moreton Island : Where to Get Your Seafood Fix

Moreton Island is a beloved 4WD, camping, and outdoor adventuring destination. You won’t find any shopping centres or boutiques, but what you can enjoy an abundance of? Seafood. Fresh as seafood.

On our recent trip to Moreton Island, we were lucky enough to treat ourselves to some of the best seafood on the island. Here are our top 4 picks.

Castaways is a glamping destination on the North West tip of Moreton Island with a general store and small café. If you’re looking for a low key, fantastic feed (land, sea, and plant options), this is your place on the North Side. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner at the café, and one of the more fully-stocked general stores on the island.

So grab some brekkie, stock the 4WD and get on your way after this little pit stop.

Moreton Island Ocean

The great open ocean

We kid you not, fishing off the beaches of Moreton island is nothing short of spectacular. If you’re lucky to snag a catch, the most common fish you’ll catch off the beach are tailor, bream, whiting, dart and flathead. Certain areas of Moreton Island are protected from fishing, so it’s important to know where to go to fish safely.
