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 island own transfer vessel, from the Yeppoon Marina.
Experience the Great Barrier Reef as you never have before; fish and dive the surrounding waters, lounge on the beach, read a book, go bird watching; unique and rare species abound, simply float in the water or delve into the adventurous side of Pumpkin Island. Explore the largest reef in the world, with a scuba tank or without. Practice your casting at the famous Giant Trevally cove. Test your wits against the Spanish Mackerel, Coral Trout and Black Kingfish out in the deep sea. Or simply take a leisurely day exploring adjoining Little Pumpkin and its natural wonders with a glass bottom kayak on an island tour watching the graceful turtles and dolphins or spotting a whale or two in the distance.
Pristine protected beaches, sheltered coves and rare wildlife, not to mention fishing, snorkeling, swimming or just taking it easy, will keep you as busy on Pumpkin Island, or as relaxed as you wish. Pumpkin Island is a playground for families young and old, utterly romantic for couples and a hoot for a group of friends.
