GREAT  Keppel Island has been named number 81 on the Australian Tavellers' 100 Incredible Travel Secrets, which was released yesterday.

IT has been a favoured destination for many Central Queenslanders, but it seems Great Keppel Island is making a name for itself as a national tourist spot.

Great Keppel Island has been named as one of Australian Travellers' 100 Incredible Travel Secrets, coming in at number 81.

The 100 was determined by a panel of 11 respected Australian travel experts, who have collectively clocked up extensive mileage exploring the country, selecting from over 1000 favourite "secret" entries from the magazine's readers, tourism operators and local and international travellers.

Chief executive officer for Capricorn Enterprise Mary Caroll said the result highlights the island's potential.

"Independent reviews like this provide an absolute buzz for our local and regional tourism industry. Imagine how much further up the list Great Keppel Island will be, once the brand new six star eco-tourism resort is built," she said.

Other Queensland destinations listed include Stradbroke Island at number 52 and the Daintree Wilderness Lodge at 43.
