The greatest thing about Great Keppel Island is that is supports doing “NOTHING”! You know – a late breakfast, a swim, a cuppa, lunch, swim, afternoon nap, cuppa – and so on. When you want to be more active, we give you snorkelling equipment to use during your stay, or take a long bushwalk to get to remote parts and beaches of the island. We organise motorised canoe trips based on weather and number of people.

There are a number of excellent bushwalking tracks to explore the island and take you to isolated beaches. Make sure to do the walk up Mt. Wyndham – it’s a beauty! The best views from the highest point on the island.
For those who love sitting on the beach and enjoy a swim or two, the two main beaches are perfect for safe, calm water swimming – but then you also have your choice of 15 other beaches, most of which you will probably have to yourself.

And don’t forget to finish your day watching the spectacular sunsets from Fisherman’s & Putney beaches looking across to the mainland.

Motorised Canoes

If you feel adventurous but you don’t want to exert yourself too much, then a motorised canoe trip to some great snorkelling spots that aren’t accessible any other way might be just thing.
Explore hidden beaches and coves, see dolphins, turtles and other marine life.


Great Keppel Island is a beautiful island, but there is more to see than just lovely views of beaches and islands. There is a whole new world under the water. The easiest way to see it is to grab snorkelling equipment from Reception and head out to Shelving and Monkey Beaches. If you want to get further afield, talk to us about a canoe ride to the best colour and biggest fish!
We also have stand-up paddle boards and vu-boards.
