On Island Experiences

Camp Island Lodge is the perfect place to relax, unwind and enjoy the natural beauty and wonder of the Great Barrier Reef.


For those who are looking for relaxation, do nothing more than sit with a book or swing in a hammock and enjoy the tranquillity of the Whitsundays. Keep an eye out for whales which pass Camp Island on their annual migration.

Swim & Snorkel

Take advantage of our complimentary snorkelling equipment to explore the spectacular coral gardens surrounding the island teeming with colourful fish and corals.

Non-Powered Water Sports

Take out a single or double kayak or a stand-up paddleboard so you can get up close and personal with the abundant marine life.

Powered Water Sports

Take out the Lodge’s centre console (for suitably licensed guests) to poke around the island for queenfish, mackerel, red emperor and coral trout or head over to Abbot Point with a fishing guide to try your luck at landing some of the massive GTs, queenfish, golden trevally and giant herring.


Feel free to grab a rod or a hand line and fish off the jetty or point of the Island.

Explore the Island

There are a number of walking tracks around the island where you may be lucky enough to spot a wallaby, echidna, sea eagle or Torres Strait pigeon. Enjoy a walk around the coral bay on the island where there are some spectacular shells to be found. Sturdy closed in shoes are recommended.

Sporting Activities

We also have a tennis court and swimming pool for those looking for a little exercise and the use of complementary fishing rods which you can use to fish off the jetty or the back of the island for some pretty impressive fish.

Take the short trip over to Cape Upstart National Park and experience the pristine, deserted beaches of the Cape. Take a beach cricket set and BBQ lunch for a day of fun.

Complete your Day

However you choose to spend your day make sure you make the time for a drink around our fire pit in the early evening and watch the sun set - magical!

By far my favourite island on the east coast and that is before we even start talking about the endless fishing possibilities.
