We (Parents and two boys, 17 and 13 visited Great Keppel in late June. The QLD area was having an unseasonal windy and cool period. The reason i mention this is that we still had a fantastic time. The island itself is just beautiful, you can walk for hours and not see a soul (you will see many goats). You... More

Stayed in the dolphin cottage. Really great place to relax and enjoy the island. Basic cottage but well set up for family and self catering. Geoff was a fantastic friendly host that went out of his way to help. Still have the option of going to the bistro in the neighbouring resort to buy a meal. Highly recommend.

My family has had several lovely stays at the Great Keppel Island Holiday Village. The owner and team of friendly backpackers make the stay very easy. It's location a brief stroll from Putney Beach provides easy access to bush walks and watersports. The camp kitchen has adequate facilities for cooking and food storage and is kept very clean.

Peaceful place for family to unwind and relax on holiday, and have a break from the stress of everyday life. With lovely surroundings, the island itself is beautiful and just waiting to be explored. This is easily accomplished as paddle boards and snorkel gear is provided with your visit. This combined with the friendly managements suggestions will allow you to... More

We spent our winter 2015 school holidays at GKI and were surprised to find it uncrowded and peaceful. On most days we had the beautiful white sand beaches to ourselves for hours at a time. Snorkeling on the fringing coral reefs was a highlight - they may not be as spectacular as the outer reefs but they were the perfect... More

My sister and I came to Great Keppel to work with Geoff and I can say it is one of the best experiences I've had in Australia! The island is so beautiful and relaxing! Going back to mainland and the 'real world' is a huge struggle! The beaches are beautiful and the walks are so lovely! The beds are comfortable... More

I can't say enough about how wonderful this place is. Geoff bends over backwards to make customers happy. We're an American couple on a RTW tour and oddly, this was the highlight of our Australia trip, even considering we saw Sydney and the Great Barrier Reef, among other places along the coast. It's a low budget, beautiful spot on a... More

We had a group of 8. 5 of us were in Dolphin Cottage (which needs a little TLC I must admit) and the others in Cabin 1. The first night the temp dropped crazy low and we froze our butts off with no blankets. I was over it at this point. However the next day we were plied with as... More

Stayed here with my daughter for 5 days over Easter. We had an amazing time sleeping in a tent with real, comfortable beds, furniture and electric. All perfectly adequate and we really enjoyed our cosy tent with its sheltered deck and lovely outlook. The loos and kitchen were kept clean by friendly staff, who even made yummy muffins for all...

I've been visiting GKI on and off since the 1980s. It's an absolutely beautiful island. The closed resort is a sad sight but on the other hand I much prefer the tranquility of less people being around. (The remainder of the accomodation and the Hideaway is open). We stayed at the Village over 10 years ago with friends and had... More
