Hey Guys,
 Just came back from a trip to Great Keppel with the family.  I went there as a kid when the resort was up and running however the resort is closed now and the place is very quiet.  We were there in the middle of the School hols and at time we had the beach to ourselves.
Following pics taken at Monkey Beach.  I was really surprised at the amount of coral and marine life.  All in all a great little holiday, very family friendly.
Pic heavy.

1. Pic of Monkey Beach, at least a football field of coral reef to explore, just around the corner from our accommodation

7. Green coloured coral, I was told the cooler colours was due to the colder water compared to up North
