Great Keppel Island is a wonderful place to do nothing – just relax, sleep or read, or take advantage of the great snorkelling (we’ll rent you equipment), bushwalk the many tracks to deserted beaches or along the ridge to the lighthouse, or kayak to the tidal lagoon.

Lyndie has written two guide books – one on snorkelling on Great Keppel Island and one on bushwalking on Great Keppel Island. You will find copies next to your beds.

BYO food, and Carl can sometimes sell you locally caught fish.
