Keppel Bay Islands National Park

National Parks and Reserves Natural Attractions

Keppel Bay Islands National Park, off Central Queensland’s Capricorn Coast, protects 13 islands in the Keppel Group and is surrounded by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

The islands are the traditional home of the Kanomi-Woppaburra people. Secluded beaches, sheltered bays, plunging cliffs and diverse plant communities are just some of the attractions on offer. Sea turtles breed and feed around the islands.

On North Keppel Island, discover wildlife and enjoy the views on several walking tracks. Don your mask and snorkel and plunge into the tropical water to discover the underwater world. Wet a line to catch fish for your meal (remember your fishing regulations!) Enjoy spectacular views from the walking track on Humpy Island.

Enjoy self-sufficient camping on seven of the Keppel islands. Boating and fishing are popular activities around the Keppel Islands and several islands have picnic facilities. Go birdwatching on the beaches.

Find out how to stay safe and be pest-free by reading the detailed information on the national parks website before you go.
