Silversea Expedition Cruises To Great Keppel Island

Great Keppel Island

Great Keppel Island is the largest island in the Keppel Island Group in the southern section of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area, southeast of Yeppoon. Geologically, this island used to be part of the Australian mainland until about 5 million years ago, but was isolated when the sea level rose and flooded the mainland. It is called a ‘Continental Island’. View more

In April 1770, Captain Cook sailed his ship the HMS Endeavour into the bay on the island and named if Keppel Bay in honor of Rear Admiral Augustus Keppel. In his diary Cook noted that although he did not make a landing, he saw local aboriginal people living on the island. The native tribe to Great Keppel is the Woppabura people, and they still have sacred sites on the island. Great Keppel is covered in a rugged landscape covered in extensive native forests and is home to more than 100 species of bird life including kookaburras and rainbow lorikeets, It also has 17 pristine white-sand beaches, which are said to be the best beaches of any Great Barrier Reef island.
