About Visit Keswick Island.com.au

VKI was launched in 2017 by Eva Browne-Paterson, an author residing on Keswick Island with her husband Brian. They made the sea/bush-change move from the NSW central coast to Keswick Island in November 2006.

Eva’s passionate love of Keswick Island has helped her spread the word abut the amazing destination to the public. She spent many years promoting the Keswick Island Guesthouse, who came runner up and 1st in the Mackay Tourism Unique Destination awards. She also promoted and attracted new guests to local holiday homes. Eva was the Secretary of the Keswick Island Progress Association Inc. (KIPA) from 2011-2022.

This website was developed to provide information about this stunning holiday destination to help attract more visitors to Keswick Island. We love living here and want to share what’s so unique about it with you.

In 2018, Eva wrote a 4-book children’s series called Island Critters, and illustrated it with the help of local artist and mentor Lesley Kane & Mackay Council’s RADF grant programme.

She is currently writing two new books, Memoirs on Keswick Island and Eat Well–Live Longer. Eva is also coordinating the upcoming Keswick Island Art Trail project set to launch on 31 July 2022.
