Most visitors to Mackay are surprised to learn that one of the southern-most Whitsunday Islands can be visited directly from the Mackay coast. Keswick Island is situated 32 kilometres from Mackay and is accessible via the water from the Mackay Marina, or by air. Keswick Island has a privately owned airstrip, so it is possible to arrive by plane or helicopter direct from Mackay. Enjoy a day on the tropical island or choose to stay on the island at a welcoming guesthouse. A spectacular jewel in the Coral Sea, Keswick Island is truly a tropical paradise. Most of the island is national park and sub-tropical rainforest, therefore is home to an abundance of colourful flora and fauna. Many bush walks throughout the island provide the opportunity to gain spectacular views across the Whitsunday water. The island is fringed by white sandy shorelines, with coral reefs within swimming distance, perfect for snorkelling. The nearby reefs are teeming with marine life, including vibrantly colourful coral gardens. Keswick Island also offers divers a unique experience, as there are three shipwreck sites all from within half an hour of the island to explore. These wrecks are a fascinating piece of the region's history. Meals and basic grocery needs can be purchased on the island and golf buggies, kayaks and snorkelling equipment are also available for hire. Humpback whales can be frequently seen around Keswick Island during their annual migration through the Whitsundays between the months of July to September. ...

    We stayed for a fantastic week over Christmas 2017 in the beach house at Basil Bay. Lovely island with gorgeous beaches, several great snorkelling spots, kayaks, golf buggies and walks. We flew over from Mackay which was amazing. The snorkelling at Coral Gardens is awesome: Brett who manages the island said it's possibly the best coral in the world and actually you'd be hard pushed to disagree, my daughter and I were sceptical at such a claim but were thoroughly overwhelmed by the amazing variety of coral and fish, I even saw a turtle. Slight downsides were a) the proximity of the beach house to its neighbour who was playing loud music, not what you'd expect on an idyllic island - he was pretty annoyed when I asked him to turn it down but he did. B) it was very hot (not surprising for the time of year) but the ceiling fans weren't quite up to the job c) the insect screens didn't fully work so we got bitten in the evening. So a visit in the cooler months should be even better.

    good anchorages for all wind directions in the Egremont passage. Beware the very strong tidal currents. running up to several knots. There is a little shop on Keswick island close to the jetty and airstrip, not sure when it is open. Besutiful coral bommies along the northern end of the passage of St Keswick next to anchorage and end of airstrip- when we were tjere it was too rough to snorkel the famous coral gardens on the southern end of the passage
