In last month’s on-line training update to all Qantas Holidays sales staff, Chris Forde (Land Contracting Manager for TNQ, QLD Islands, Whitsundays, SGBR and Outback Queensland, Helloworld Travel) promoted:

“Great Keppel Island Hideaway & Keppel Konnections – Have you ever been to Great Keppel Island along the Capricorn Coast within the Southern Great Barrier Reef region of Queensland?  It’s a magical spot and Chris Forde thinks the beaches are better than Whitehaven!  The accommodation is clean and comfortable cabin style accommodation, it took me less than 15 seconds to get out of my Beachfront Island Cabin bed and walk down and be on the beach.  Great Keppel Island Hideaway (2019 wholesale preferred) is located off the coast of Yeppoon which is a 40 minute drive from Rockhampton Airport.”

You can’t beat that as a third party endorsement for Great Keppel Island and our destination – thanks Chris!
