Pumpkin Island Capricorn Coast Australia
One of Australia's hidden gems and best-kept island secrets nestled in the Keppel Group of islands, 14 kilometres off the coast from Yeppoon. A holiday on Pumpkin Island offers a blissful escape from the stresses of modern day life and a chance to partake in pristine nature. Easily accessible by private boat or the Pumpkin Xpress, from the Keppel Bay Marina in Yeppoon. There you will find five eco-friendly self-catering cottages and two beach bungalows powered by wind and sun, overlooking a crystalline beach. Each accommodates between four and six guests. Guests can pre-order gourmet meals from the award winning Waterline Restaurant, at Keppel Bay Marina, collected on the day of departure. There is so much to do on this island treasure. The wildlife will delight you; expect to see dolphins, turtles and whales in season. Fish the rich waters, snorkel or experience the coral reefs from a glass bottom kayak, harvest your own oysters off the rocks or simply wander the secluded beaches. Perfect for safe swimming and snorkelling most of the year round. Pumpkin Island is wonderful for families, utterly romantic for couples and a hoot for a group of friends.
