What makes Keswick Island unique is that the majority of the island is National Park, with over 80% of the island’s 1,300 acres being protected.
Residents and visitors are welcome to explore the national park to marvel at the pristine beaches, the ancient trees and seasonal wildlife. A number of walking trails are maintained; however, at this stage, coverage throughout the national park area is limited. Beaches belonging to the national park can be accessed by boat or kayak, and in some instances by foot. For maps of the island, and walking tracks, see Maps & Island Facts.
The authority responsible for the national park is:
Queensland Parks & Wildlife, Airlie Beach, Central Queensland
Corner Mandalay & Shute Harbour Roads, Jubilee Pocket, Airlie Beach QLD 4802
