Great Keppel Island

Great Keppel Island is outside Rockhampton.

It is the largest and most accessible of all Keppel Islands, reached by regular ferries from Rosslyn Bay east of Rockhampton.

On the western side of the island there is a resort and other kinds of accommodation, as well as day trippers facilities, food outlets, watersports and short walking tracks to Monkey Beach and Long Beach.

Longer walking tracks go from Long Beach to the island's Lookout Point, Leeke's Beach, Clam Bay, Butterfish Bay, Wreck Beach, and the longest one - a three hour walk to Bald Rock Point in the eastern end of the island.
The beaches are beautiful, waters perfectly calm for snorkelling, and it takes longer than a day to discover the whole island.
