Explore the magic of Great Keppel Island with easy transfers to the Marina from our Resort and the City of Rockhampton. The island is truly breathtaking and from the moment your feet first feel that soft white silica sand between your toes you relax into island time and get lost in the peaceful energy of this little pocket of paradise.
This 14.5 km² of pure paradise also known as Ganumi Bara lies just 15kms from the Marina along the Capricorn Coast of Central Queensland, Australia. Great Keppel Island is the largest of the eighteen islands in the Keppel Group and is home to a family of turtles, an abundance of bird life and some very friendly goats.
The tropical climate and 17 white sandy beaches with some of the highest cover of hard coral reefs on the Great Barrier Reef make this spot so special. The coral diversity of these reefs matches that of the Whitsundays easily with clear waters most of the year around and calm bays that are just perfect for snorkelling.
Unlike Fraser Island you can explore the magic of Great Keppel in just one day making it super affordable and easy to navigate. For just $45 you can book a return ferry and transfer with us from the hostel. We also offer some great package deals so be sure to check out our packages page.
