Keswick Island, Mackay Area

Indicative Rate * AU$600.00 to AU$650.00 Full Board

Keswick Island Guest House is on Keswick Island, a small piece of paradise at the southern tip of the Whitsundays, 32 kilometres north east of Mackay. Located within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, the waters around Keswick abound with tropical fish and turtles, and humpback whales pass through during August and September. There are five beautiful beaches, accessible on foot or a short boat ride away, plus fabulous fringing reef, perfect for snorkelling, or you can dive the wreck of the Cremer or the Singapore.

All four rooms feature king beds and ensuite bathrooms and most have access to the huge deck with breathtaking views over the Coral Sea and neighbouring Whitsunday Islands. Walk the bush track to Connie Bay and pass beehives that produce the famous Keswick Island honey. Swim and snorkel or paddle a kayak in Basil Bay.

Your holiday includes three delicious meals each day, along with use of snorkelling gear, kayaks and a golf buggy to explore the island. Enjoy a cold beer or glass of wine from the bar or ask for your favourite cocktail.

Free Entry
South Cumberland Islands National Park encompasses nine islands. Rocky, rugged, hoop pine-dominated headlands stand out from open eucalypt woodland and extensive grasslands of the wind-exposed slopes. Protected coves shelter long, sandy beaches, while deep gullies hide remnants of dry rainforest. Ringed by fringing reefs, many of the islands are important rookeries for flatback and green turtles. Camp at Scawfell, St Bees, Cockermouth, Keswick or Penrith islands. Scawfell Island has basic facilities. Camping fees apply and bookings are essential. Book in advance for school holidays. Take water and a fuel stove. Check restrictions on activities such as spearfishing, anchoring, fishing and collecting.

Llewellyn Dive Site

East Mackay, Mackay Area
Free Entry
Exciting wreck diving is to be had at the historic 'Llewellyn' site, east of Mackay on the Great Barrier Reef. The steamer was last seen departing Cape Capricorn Lighthouse on 17 July 1919 and disappeared during heavy gales as it sailed from Rockhampton to Bowen. The location of the vessel remained a mystery until 1997, when the shipwreck was located 35 kilometres east of Mackay.

Brampton Islands National Park

Brampton Island, Mackay Area
Free Entry
Brampton Island National Park, at the southern entrance to the Whitsunday Passage, consists of Brampton and Carlisle islands. Rocky headlands dotted with hoop pines, open grasslands, woodlands, sheltered bays and long sandy beaches make these islands some of the most scenic off the Queensland coast. The islands and surrounding waters are part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area and are protected. Both islands are important turtle rookeries. Walking tracks traverse the Brampton Island's many ecosystems, from open eucalypt forest on ridges and sheltered slopes to the dense vine forest in gullies and valleys. An amazing display of marine life and coral surround the islands. Dense eucalypt forest clothes Carlisle Island, and rainforest thrives in its sheltered gullies. Bush camping is available on Carlisle Island. Camping fees apply and bookings are essential. It is recommended to book in advance for school holidays. Take water and a fuel stove. Check restrictions on activities such as spearfishing, anchoring, fishing and collecting. The park is part of the sea country of the Ngaro people, which stretches north to the Whitsunday islands.

Shoal Point

Shoal Point, Mackay Area
Free Entry
Shoal Point is the most northern beach of the Northern Beaches and is approximately 15 minutes from Mackay City Centre. Shoal Point offers a beachfront, shady picnic area with views to the islands, Cape Hillsborough National Park and the Hibiscus Coast. It also provides excellent reef fishing; the more open sections of the beach are the spots for whiting, bream, trevally and flathead.
