About Keswick Island.
Keswick Island was discovered by Captain James Cook in 1770, then renamed after the Cumbrian town of Keswick, UK in 1879 by SS Llewellyn's Commander EP Bedwell, RN. Over the years, Keswick Island has remained largely untouched as farmland, until 2008 when Keswick Developments Pty Ltd attained the parent leasehold for the island. Eighty percent of the island is designated as National Park, while twenty percent has been set aside for small to medium scale development. There are currently around 20 completed homes, and 20 permanent residents living on the island.

Visitors to Keswick Island enjoy beautiful sub-tropical weather during most of the year with water temperatures around 26ºC in summer, and 20ºC in winter. Wet season is usually around Jan-March each year. June is the coldest month with temperatures going down to approximately 15ºC, and summer months enjoy a temperate 30ºC on average.

Suitable activities for guests to the island include swimming, hiking, bird watching, fishing, oystering, flying fox viewing at sunset, snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking, beach combing, reef walking at low tide, or hill climbing. Humpback whale watching is a common pass-time during the northern migration in July to September. Photographers will always find many natural photo opportunities to take advantage of. Some years during certain conditions, swarms of tiger blue butterflies abound in millions to create a breathtaking sight.
