Yeppoon & Capricorn Coast

Reef within easy reach

The Southern Great Barrier Reef is just a hop, skip and a splash from Yeppoon.

This watery wonderland brims with corals, turtles and a myriad of rainbow coloured marine life. Snorkel atop sparkling waters or watch sea creatures pass beneath your feet while in a glass bottom boat.

Beaches galore

Spend dreamy days exploring the laid-back vibe of seaside villages.

Enjoy solo sun-lounging on beaches away from crowds. Swim in safe, calm waters and try beach fishing. There’s a beach for everyone! Every beach buff will find a favourite stretch of sand with so many family-friendly and dog-friendly options.

Laidback lifestyle

Throw out your schedule and throw on your swimmers.

Relax – let the Capricorn Coast locals greet you as you with a smile as warm as the weather. Soak up charming café culture, taste local flavours and enjoy sunset walks on soft sandy beaches. Enjoy year-round sunshine, street art, relaxed seaside dining, fashion and homewares.

Blue Lagoon

Take a sparkling, infinity edge pool, add views of the Keppel Islands and you’ve arrived at the Yeppoon Lagoon.

This free aquatic playground has swimming spots for everyone. At Yeppoon Lagoon, kids can paddle in the shade of the water play fountains, big kids can go deep diving, or lap swimming, or even just relaxing and enjoying the views.

Circle of Green

Breathe in pure rainforest air at Byfield National Park.

At Byfield, relax in rainforest cabins, pitch a tent alongside a flowing fresh water creek. Swim, kayak and explore the artisan crafts at Nob Creek Pottery.

Seaside Spirit

Honor the spirit of the ANZAC with a scenic seaside memorial walk.

Also commemorating the legacy of Captain Cook at the Singing Ship  monument, the quaint coastal township of Emu Park has retained a dreamy, laid-back vibe.  It’s where the welcoming locals are never outnumbered by tourists.
