About Great Keppel Island

Great Keppel Island is the largest of eighteen islands in the Keppel Group, and covers an area of 1308 hectares.

Great Keppel Island is largely known for the pristine Southern Great Barrier Reef which boats exceptional beauty and biological diversity under the mirrored surface that is Keppel Bay.

The walking trails provide a visual delight at each bay and rocky outcrop you find. The island is too big to walk the whole island in a day tour so if you decide to spend a weekend on Great Keppel Island you will not be disappointed.

The island has secret coves, inland wetlands that provide a sanctuary for seabirds and other intersting wildlife. 

If you enjoy a spot of fishing bring along your own gear or hite some on Great Keppel Island. Be aware of the green zones and areas that fishing is permitted and keep an eye on your bag limits to keep some fish for the next person.
