svendsens beach

We are a small, secluded, friendly, eco-sensitive accommodation retreat on the quiet side of Great Keppel Island – a tropical island on the inner Great Barrier Reef in Queensland.

We accommodate adults 14 years and older in our luxury eco camping retreat right next to the beach. (Other tourism ventures on the island accommodate children under 14.)
