Great Keppel Island Rejuvenation Project
We understand the importance of Great Keppel Island to the Central Queensland economy and to stimulate tourism on the island, the state government has committed $25 million towards infrastructure that could attract more visitors and further private sector investment to the region.
Funding will be used to deliver new tourism infrastructure to support tourism on the island with options under consideration including:
- cyclone rated jetty
- barge slant boat ramp
- solar with backup generators
- visitor facilities including amenities, shade and seating
- rehabilitate existing walking trails
- new walking trails
- viewing platform.
We are undertaking investigations into these options and working with Queensland Government agencies, Livingstone Shire Council and other key stakeholders to determine priorities to be delivered under the Project.
