Great Keppel Island Holiday Village

Great Keppel Island, Queensland, 4700, Australia

Surrounded by stunning beaches and untouched bush, this is a modest, quiet alternative for travelers looking to get back to basics and enjoy the environs the "old fashioned" way. Free of TVs, Internet, and mod cons, the village centers around a large reception hall, where you can buy island maps, pick up snorkeling gear or a paddle board (free for guests), rent a motorized canoe, discover walking tracks, and meet other travelers. Varied accommodation includes two solar-powered, self-contained family houses; two cabins with en suite bathrooms; basic twin and double rooms in the main lodge; a small, six-tent-capacity campground; and permanent canvas tents with wood floors, twin or double beds, lights, quality linens, and decks with outdoor furniture. There's also a well-equipped communal kitchen, and a barbecue for cooking out. Bring your own groceries (buy extra supplies from the village store) or dine out at the Island Bar & Bistro, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Rates drop with longer stays.
