Great Keppel Island Honeymoon Guide

Great Keppel Island offers a choice of gorgeous white-sand beaches that lie framed between rocky headlands in picturesque coves of clear turquoise water – the perfect spot for a honeymoon or romantic getaway holiday.

Idyllic Great Keppel Island rivals the better-known Whitsunday Islands that lie further north and is perfect for kayaking, snorkelling and swimming.

What to do and see on Great Keppel Island

Pick a secluded spot to sunbathe on stunning Two Mile Beach, set between bush-clad rocky headlands on the south coast of the island.

Great Keppel also offers a wide range of activities including sailing, fishing, scuba diving, water skiing, parasailing and skydiving.

Tee-off at the local golf course (a seven-hole chip and putt course), take a sunset cruise or ride camels along Putney Beach.
