My wife and I met at Geoff's original property Keppel Kampout in 1994. Kiwi meets Pom, and after a few 'test tubes' at the Wreck Bar the chemistry was right. We have now returned with our two kids aged 6 and 8.
Day one and I'm already lying on the beach writing a review, thanks to the excellent mobile coverage here on Keppel.
We've got two tents and they're fantastic. Comfy beds, lamps, and oscillating fan. All other facilities are on par with the experience we expected. Hot showers, well equipped kitchen, and clean facilities. Only tip I'd give is to manage perishables and frozen goods carefully as the fridges get a real workout with constant opening and closing.
If you're cool with the self-catering 'glamping' or cabin experience, you won't find a better place on Keppel. It's the staff who make the difference and you'll find out how down-to-earth and easy going they are from the moment you're met at the ferry.
Great Keppel remains a favourite and, if managed appropriately, I believe it will thrive with the planned new resort. As long as the island maintains the balance and caters for all markets, while caring for the environment, Central Qld will reap the benefits and drag more of us up on an 8 hour road trip oddessey from Brisbane.
P.s. To the dog loving boaters, leave your mangey mutts at home. I don't appreciate my beach towel being 'sprayed' on
