Getting here and getting around

How to get to Castaways Resort & Spa

Castaways Resort & Spa is located approximately 1,5 hours drive south of Cairns (closest international airport) or 2,5 hours north of Townsville. The perfect stop-over for visitors travelling along the coast. We are first and foremost a self-drive destination and there are a wide range of car rentals businesses available both in Townsville and Cairns. The main reason why we recommend self-drive is to avoid our guests being confined to the resort as there are so many great activities and tours to partake of in the area.  Complimentary car parking is available for all guests at the resort and our Tour & Activities desk can help you with planning your activities and make great recommendations on “local gems”.
