We visited Keppel Haven quiet some time ago and stayed there a 2 nights, but thought it deserved a comment. The ferry ride took about 20 minutes and it was good fun. Once we arrived on the island the resort staff arrived in a vehicle to pick our luggage and directed us. We had a lovely walk along the pathway... More

My family & I spent a beautiful day at Great Keppel and thought we would support local industry by having lunch at Keppel Haven. We were told that lunch would not take long to be served, after an hour of patiently waiting it finally arrived. The seafood basket had 2 prawns on top with black legs and head the fish... More

Had a lovely stay in a cabin with our family, new owners are upgrading everything over time, even though we had air conditioning, it did not work, make sure you ask during summer. Great location 20 minutes by boat from the mainland! Nice restaurant/pub and even a good pizza place on the island. We thought prices was a bit too... More

We had not been to Great Keppel Island for 18 years. We had wonderful memories of a relaxing resort and of swimming off beautiful sandy beaches to snorkel over coral teaming with coloured fish. So, passing through Rockhampton, we took the day ferry trip from Yeppoon to Great Keppel Island (30 minutes each way). The island was as beautiful as... More

I love Great Keppel Island and recommend it, however Keppel Haven is very rundown. Owner was very helpful & accommodating, but the beachfront cabins only have the view & close proximity to Putney Beach going for them. Turning the generator off at night is inconvenient, so make sure you pack a torch if you choose to stay here. I probably... More

We loved the island but hated the cabin. No cutlery, crockery, dish washing liquid, hot water, blankets....the list goes on. Furthermore we later found out from Yeppoon locals that the going rate for a cabin is 100 dollars, we paid 150 and had no hot water for the whole time we were there. If you're going to GKI, try and... More

We went out to the Keppels with our brother and sister-in law and 5 young children for a relaxing afternoon trip, when the weather turned bad, forcing us to retreat to Great Keppel Island. Unable to return to mainland due to the severe winds and waves we searched for somewhere to stay and the possiblity of a meal very late... More

This is about reef bar and bistro only, not the entire resort, We went for a day trip to the island and decided to get food. The lady at the counter told us the wait would be 20 minutes, so we sat inside the cafe at a table and waited. 25 minutes later, we got up to get our food,... More

My family and two other families stayed in cabins 10,11 and 12 absolute beachfront Advertised as self contained. No utensils or plates in two cabins. A day and a half later were given cutlery.

We've just gotten back from a 5 day adventure over at Keppel Island.. What can I say? Joann and all of her staff were amazing.. We stayed at another site, but went back to Keppel Haven Bar and Bistro for breakfast and dinner most nights (because we forgot food).. We felt incredibly spoilt by everyone there and it was great...
