Nestled within the turquoise waters of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, just a stone’s throw from the tropical Queensland city of Mackay, lies a world of undiscovered treasures. Keswick Island is a natural wonderland – a world of national parks and tropical rainforests, fringed by white sands and a coral reef bursting with vibrant marine life.
Keswick Island is a natural paradise boasting sheltered bays of incredible beauty, high vantage points with 360-degree views, lush forests and craggy outcrops. It is the last island in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef – one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World – that has planning approval for a large-scale development and is possibly the last substantial marina that will be approved in the region. A significant portion of the island is designated national park, which will prevent over-development and underlines its ecological credentials.
