Stayed for one night in one of the permanent tents which was perfect for our needs, the ideal base from which to explore beautiful Great Keppel Island. Loved the laid back village atmosphere which lived up to its name of the 'quiet alternative'. We cooked our own food in the communual kitchen which was very clean and had everything you...

We (two adults and a 4 & 6 yr old) booked two nights at GKI Holiday village last minute as we wanted a couple days to relax before driving north up to Cairns. Geoff was easy to communicate with via text and managed to fit us in. We took the Keppel Connection ($140 return for everyone) from town and zipped...

Stay at a place with the most laid back and relaxed vibe with communal kitchen and hang out together with a small group of other travelers as much as you like. The white sand beaches on the island are stunning, snorkeling is great with turtles and all other marine life and beautiful corals. Incredibly outside holiday season you are most...

Just finished a 10/7 holiday at Great Keppel Holiday Village with our family. Fantastic experience, the Dolphin House was a spotless, beach house vibe with the local flora and fauna surrounding the dwelling. 2 minute walk to beach and bar/bistro area. If you like clear blue/turquoise water with white deserted beaches and wearing no shoes, this is the holiday for...

Its like visiting friends. Geoff welcomes you as you get off the ferry and takes your luggage while you make the short walk along pristine beach to the Village. I had the tent for 1 night. Geoff explains to everyone in the common lounge area about the honesty system for drinks etc in fridge, free use of snorkelling equipment and...

On the ferry about to leave the island and I must say all I can think about is when we will be back! What an absolutely gorgeous and tranquil place. I've never felt so relaxed and happy. My expectations of this place were beyond exceeded. Staying in a quiet rustic little cabin so close to one of the best beaches...

My partner and I stayed at the holiday village a couple of weeks ago. We hired the tent room which was $45 a night. It had a double bed, electricity and a fan. The village has a very chilled out vibe which suited us perfectly. We could meander about on the deserted beaches, go for a swim in the most...

Absolutely loved our stay here! We didn't want to leave! If you stay on the island - stay here! Geoff is a fantastic host and goes out of his way to make you feel welcome and he makes sure you have everything you need. You won't find many places like this anywhere in the world. It's a retreat from everything...

We had the pleasure of staying at Geoff's "Great Keppel Island Holiday Village" and I can't recommend it enough. Positioned at the crux of two popular, family friendly beaches, a short walk from the island's bistro/bar complex and near the ferry drop-off, this quiet and comfortable backpackers-cum-camp site-cum-chill out resort has something for everybody. Our family of three stayed in...
