What to Pack


What to pack Β for your island getaway is much likeΒ any beach destination, your sunscreen and a hat are essential. However, here on Great Keppel Island, there are some quirky requirements for our island lifestyle that you may need to bear in mind…


The facilities in your room will vary, depending on the room style you have booked. For the houses, Cabins and Garden rooms, there will be a cake of soap in the bathroom but you will need to provide your own toiletries. The family rooms will find soap in their shared bathroom too.


Bore Water

Here on Great Keppel Island, we run off bore water so please be aware before you arrive that you cannot drink the tap water in your room. You will find big containers of drinking water in your room, you will just need to bring a smaller bottle to take out and about with you. There is always drinking water available in the bar & bistro area and if you do require additional water, it is available for purchase.


Beach Towels

Full linen is provided in all room types, however we do not provide beach towels so please remember to pack your favourite!


InsectΒ Repellent

We are an island (as obvious as it sounds!) so bugs and insects do come with the territory, we recommend you bring some insect repellent, particularly if your skin if sensitive to bites.


Walking Shoes

If you are planning to explore the island, please remember that Great Keppel is not a national park, therefore some of the walking tracks are challenging so we do recommend proper walking shoes. if you’re heading off for the whole day, an appropriate backpack is also recommended.
