The New Castaways

This iconic Mission Beach Resort site has evolved for the past 40 years. “The New Castaways” is the next evolution for the resort development site, known regionally as Castaways.

“Over the past 12 years we have steadfastly maintained our commitment to the Castaways business and the broader region. We have invested heavily in the existing asset, maintained a regional marketing presence far in excess of the scale of the business and maintained our long held vision for the Mission Beach Region. This vision is based on an overarching desire to see a thriving tourism industry that ensures the character of Mission Beach and its beautiful natural assets are preserved.
The past decade has been a struggle for the tourism reliant businesses of Mission Beach, and surrounding areas of Tully, Cardwell and Innisfail. Now is the time for the next evolution of this iconic tourism asset that has been the life blood of Mission Beach for the past 40 years. The time for our region has arrived and we are proud to launch the plans for, “The New Castaways”, a World class resort designed to maintain the character of Mission Beach, whilst at the same time delivering the economies of scale to underpin a sustainable business model for the resort and support the growth of the tourism based economy of Mission Beach and the entire Cassowary Coast region”
