“Great Keppel is GREAT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

From the moment you take your shoes off to step straight off the catamaran and onto the sand, you feel relaxed and welcome. There's a lovely mix of OS backpackers, families, singles, groups and couples and meal times in the communal kitchen and around the long wooden table are always friendly and interesting. The gorgeous beaches and abundant wildlife would impress anyone and the reef snorkelling is extremely safe and accessible. Our 2 children loved playing the games on the shelf, I borrowed and read a few books and our only expense was an icecream treat from the Rainbow Hut each day. On the one day it was cloudy, we climbed the 2 lookouts to Mt Wyndham and passed the old homestead and shearing shed to Leeke's Beach and along the coast at low tide. No TV, internet or computer games and lights out at 11pm made for a wonderful stress-free family holiday and we're planning our return trip already. Thankyou Geoff for sharing you little piece of paradise!

We stayed three nights in a tent room. It was absolutely wonderful. My partner and i had been traveling abroad for the last 14 months and coming home I wanted to show him the sights. Of all the places we have been this was the MOST relaxing. Loved the tent as they are new and replaced every year. You get a real sense of harmony on the island. Clean, great kitchen and brilliant staff, we didn't want to leave. Thank you for a amazing stay. Kevin & Kirby

Room Tip: The tents are brilliant. Even better than a cabin :)

We stayed in the tent accom, it was clean and tidy. Beautiful island, heaps to explore - great snorkeling, whale watching, bush walks. Birds in holiday park were really loud, nice in the afternoon not so nice at 3 in the morning! Overall it was a nice trip but not very good value at $85 for a decked out tent.

This place is the place you only dream of!
There use to be a huge resort here a few years ago and there is plans for another one to go up in the next few years - so get here before everybody else does!!! It is such a beautiful, peaceful and tranquil place.... There is so much space here, you can spend the whole day without seeing anybody if you do not want to. Awesome walks or spend the whole day on your own beach!
Geoff is a great host, so down to earth and approachable! We ran out of time to grab food to take over to the island and he of to cook for us and even offered to get stuff from the mainland for us. DO REMEMBER - to take food with you, there is a restaurant, but when you are in this beautiful place, it is nice to just kick back and throw a few snaggs on the bbq.

Room Tip: I enjoyed the tent accom - it had a double bed, bed side tables and lamp... Was very home away from...

Leave any pretentiousness at home. Come here for a basic, no fuss escape from it all. Best hosts in the world. Best island on the east coast. Enjoy it while it lasts before the big resort opens again - have the place to yourself. Pure bliss. Book a night here and I guarantee you'll be asking Geoff for another night. Stay in one of the tents-with-beds. Oh, and go for a nice long walk and find amazing beaches with only your footprints. I can't recommend this place enough. Enjoy!
