Great Keppel island is a beautiful, accessible part of the Southern Great Barrier Reef, and should be experienced by all!

Booking is required, however there may still be availability on the day so please contact our reception for last minute enquiries.

Whether you’re here for a stay or here for a day, we look forward to “ferrying” you to Great Keppel Island soon.

Ferry transfers to the magnificent Great Keppel Island depart twice daily. The journey takes approximately 30 minutes and upon arrival to GKI you will be dropped at the beautiful fisherman’s beach, just a stone’s throw from Great Keppel Island Hideaway Bar & Bistro. If you are staying on the island, your accommodation house will greet the ferry and take your luggage. For those just visiting for the day, lunch is available every day from 12pm-2pm at the Hideaway.
