Hey girls – you ready to get dirty?

Those searching for a girl’s weekend with a twist of adventure should look no further than Moreton Island with Global Jamboree announcing that the 1st Dirty Girls 4×4 Weekend will be held on September 21 -22 based at the newly unveiled Glampsites.

Just 70 minutes from Brisbane’s CBD, Moreton Island will play host to a weekend of fun and 4 wheel driving for the 1st Dirty Girls 4×4 Weekend. Moreton’s long beach tracks, stunning bush trails and expansive national park offer a fitting landscape for ladies in search of a pampering weekend away with friends, while also getting down and dirty and learning 4×4 off-roading, sand boarding and more.

Global Jamboree’s Moreton Island Package includes overnight in the new Glampsites, a delicious food and beverage package, vehicle transfers , sand boarding at the Desert  – a manicure, T-shirt and survival kit and a two-day guided tour and expert advice from Global Jamboree’s trained staff.

Ladies will unwind and catch up over the weekend as they sip champagne at ‘Champagne Rocks’ or around the evening beach bonfire, have a manicure and greet the sunrise with a morning yoga session before hitting the sand to learn about 4×4 off-road driving including how to stay on a formed track, how to reduce tyre pressure and maintain traction on inland tracks and soft sand, how to re-inflate tyres to resume speed on harder sand, develop an understanding of the tides and how to cross creeks flowing out on to the beach.

The 1st 4×4 Dirty Girls Weekend package on Moreton Island is $220 per person including ferry transfer, accommodation, meals and all activities.

Hidden away amidst the Melaleucas at Castaways at Bulwer, the brand new Glampsites are the ideal accommodation for ladies who usually avoid traditional camping. Each tent is beautifully furnished with a queen size bed, private ensuite and verandah so there is no assembling, bug proofing or setting up required.  Everything guests require for their stay is provided, meaning no car loads of equipment either. The Glampsites are half a heartbeat from the stunning beaches for which Moreton Island is famous and provide the ideal sanctuary for a girl’s weekend following each day of activities.

Glamping at Castaways

Moreton Island Glamping offers all the beloved aspects of camping; it is an environmentally friendly travel option, offering an escape from technology and the city and a way of getting closer to nature, but does it in style with quality furnishings, private ensuites, central BBQs and kitchen facilities and on-going quality of presentation.

There are few islands as stunning as Moreton Island – it’s the third largest sand island in the world; a natural wonder waiting to be explored and celebrated. Home to some of the world’s most beautiful freshwater lakes, coloured sands, rugged cliffs and sand hills, the island also boasts the largest sand dune in the world in Mt Tempest. Importantly, this natural majesty has and remains carefully protected – 98% of Moreton Island is a National Park.
