The sheltered bays of Keswick Island are home to colourful coral gardens and a myriad of tropical fish that rates amongst the best in the Great Barrier Reef. It offers divers a unique diving experience, as there are very few places in the world where you can experience world class diving, and one of the few places in Australia where you have the potential to dive three wreck sites all from within half an hour of the island.

There are several walking treks that lead to secluded beaches with beautiful views along the way. Keswick Island in still being developed, currently the only visitor accommodation is the Keswick Island Guesthouse and Bed and Breakfast.
