Here’s why you will love exploring and camping the Whitsunday Islands with Scamper Camping Transfers.

Scamper is the perfect aluminum transfer barge designed to carry 34 passengers and luggage across its 10m frame. Her shape allows her to run right up onto the beach to deliver you safe and dry at your chosen National Park camp site. She goes at high-speed with excellent maneuverability to give you the most time possible on your camping adventure.

Whitsunday Island Camping Connections operate 7 days a week however check availability to ensure Scamper isn’t taking part in her scheduled beauty days (maintenance). Departing from Shute Harbour, approximately 9kms south east of Airlie Beach, Scamper will deliver you to your chosen camp site based on a pre-determined schedule- weather permitting.

Call us to co-ordinate your desired camp site with the accessibility of the tides prior to booking your camping permit.

IMPORTANT
You must have a camping permit prior to departure. These cost $6.15 per person per night with family passes available. These are easily available from:
Internet - www.qld.gov.au/camping
Phone- 13QGOV (137468)
In Person- National Park Offices over the counter

If booking via the phone or internet you will be issued with a permit number but not a tent tag. These are available at the Scamper departure shed or at the National Park Offices. A tent tag makes everything easier so you don’t have to be at your tent when the Rangers are doing their checks- allowing you to enjoy your holiday!
