Reasons to visit Keswick Island, Qld, Australia

Just a short distance from Mackay in Queensland, Australia lies the hidden haven of Keswick Island. The island is a must see if you’re visiting North Tropical Queensland, surrounded by natural beauty, gorgeous sky blue waters and the ambient silence of nature. We first visited the island during late October, 2016 and from the moment we stepped off the plane we were memorized by the atmosphere of the island. Access to the Island is a short scenic flight from the Mackay airport (with views of surrounding islands and the main land that are to die for) or alternatively via boat charter. Below are some of the many reasons why you should most certainly put Keswick Island on your bucket list!
