Great Keppel (Wop-pa) Island Master Plan Project

Closed 30 Nov 2022

Opened 13 Oct 2022


The Great Keppel (Wop-pa) Island (GKI) Master Plan Project is a key step in delivering on the Queensland Government’s commitment to revitalise tourism on GKI.

The Master plan will aim to:

  • enhance GKI as a premier tourism destination in Queensland
  • facilitate development and investment aspirations through identifying preferred tourism development opportunities that align with the current and future tourism and investment market and the community’s vision for the island
  • identify priority common-user infrastructure for improving island accessibility, amenity, appearance, sustainability, operability and supporting tourism opportunities
  • consider the planning constraints and opportunities associated with infrastructure, land tenure, environmental and cultural heritage values and stakeholder aspirations
  • protect the core characteristics that make GKI the special place that it is by protecting important resources on the island and preserving areas of environmental and cultural significance
  • facilitate the revitalisation of GKI for the benefit of the visitors, businesses and the community
  • acknowledge the Woppaburra People as the traditional owners of the island and surrounding Sea Country and ensure cultural values are considered.
