This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Great Keppel Island.

Great Keppel Island is the largest island of the Keppel group located in the capricorn coast -– Queensland -- in Australia. The archipelago is best known for its amazing beaches and also for having few tourists, and yet it does have backpackers hostels. Obviously, the white sand here is really pure; together with the blue clear water on the cloudless days, the scenery is simply magnificent.

Great Keppel Island is a perfect place for relaxing and getting away from the day-to-day world. The places to see are obvious -- beaches! Breathtaking Putrey and Fisherman beaches are a must-see, and most of all, a place to admire and enjoy the water. Long Beach is the perfect stop for those who enjoy lying half a day under the sun. Monkey Beach is one of the best snorkeling spots in the archipelago and undoubtedly the best in Great Keppel Island; the shallow coral in the west end of the beach will delight you. In this beach, you'll also be able to find Middens -- shell mounds -- left by aborigines from the time of the settlers in Australia.

You can reach Great Keppel Island by ferry from Rosslyn Bay -- near Yeppon -- and on the island you can find free parking at the harbor, but without any protection from salt brought from the sea by the wind. When you arrive by ferry, you'll be near all the accommodation choices.

You will not find many hostels in Great Keppel Island, so be sure that you book in advance -- mostly in the summer and Easter seasons. Great Keppel Island hostels are typical, simple beach houses, but you will enjoy it. Usually you won't have much staff around, so ask some advice about the best spots on your arrival.
