Great Keppel Island Hideaway

Backpackers and Hostels

Great Keppel Island Hideaway welcomes guests to share their barefoot island paradise, an authentic locally owned Island resort situated on the Southern Great Barrier Reef, merely 30 minutes ferry from Yeppoon.

The Resort boasts simplistic back to basic cabin style accommodation, a fully licensed restaurant and bar overlooking The Great Barrier Reef with 17 pristine white sandy beaches to discover. Explore private coves and pockets of fringing reef around Great Keppel Island for safe swimming, snorkelling, diving or simply lazing in the azure waters with turtles and dolphins. Hire stand-up paddle boards, kayaks or join a guided kayak or Jet Ski tour. Fish straight off the beach or jump aboard a deep water fishing trip for a fresh dinner catch.

Great Keppel has stunning scenic bushwalks which disperse trekkers around the island to secluded beaches and spectacular lookouts where you can enjoy hidden island picnic spots to indulge and unwind. The animal life is prolific, with brush tailed possums, blue-tongue lizards, goannas, echidnas and a huge variety of birdlife. Alternatively simply relax sipping cocktails overlooking the tranquil waters of the Great Barrier Reef.
