Snorkelling on Keswick Island
Things To Do Farleigh, Mackay, Queensland
The Great Barrier Reef coral fringes Keswick and provides magnificent snorkelling, especially at Connie Bay and Coral Gardens.
Keswick’s coral reef offers something for everyone, from swim-through caves and deep canyons to wide shallows, teeming with marine life.
Green, Hawksbill, Flatback and Loggerhead turtles can be found in the waters around Keswick Island and these are also home to some of the most exciting, exotic and rare marine life in the world. Whilst snorkelling, spotting a manta ray is an unforgettable experience. These gentle giants, measuring up to four metres wide, are at times found swimming gracefully around Keswick.

You can visit the island via private boat or charter.
