What to do on Great Keppel Island

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 hire snorkeling equipment to use during your stay, or take a long bushwalk to get to remote parts and beaches of the island.  Circumnavigate the island on the new Keppel Explorer Boat Tour or hire kayaks and jet skis from the beachfront watersports hut.

There are a number of excellent walking tracks to explore Great Keppel Island and take you to isolated beaches. Make sure to do the walk up Mt. Wyndham – it’s a beauty! The best view of Long Beach 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 beach looking across to the mainland.

Great Keppel Island Snorkeling

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 snorkeling is amazing! The easiest way to see it is to grab snorkelling equipment from reception and head out to Shelving and Monkey Beach. If you want to get further afield, talk to us about a boat ride to the best colour and biggest fish!
