Posted on June 29th, 2020
- Take a trip to Great Keppel Island! Head over on Keppel Konnections and spend the day exploring our beautiful slice of the Southern Great Barrier Reef. One day not enough? Why not stay a couple of nights at the Great Keppel Island Hideaway?
- Head to Byfield National Park and take a quick dip at Stoney Creek or Water Park Creek. While you’re there check out Nob Creek Pottery.
- Grab your walking shoes and head off on one of the many mountain climbs in the area including Mount Baga (formerly Mt Jim Crow), Mount Etna and Mount Archer. Looking for something more relaxed? Head to the Turtle Lookout at the Bluff Point for a spectacular view of the Capricorn Coast Region.
- Swim in the newly developed Yeppoon Lagoon. With a 2500 sqaure-metre resort style lagoon pool, a stunning infinity edge, shallow children’s play area and cafe, why wouldn’t you check it out? While you’re there, take a short 500m walk along the Yeppoon foreshore to the Keppel Kracken.
- Check out the Koorana Crocodile Farm, if you dare! Family, friendly, fun educational tours run twice a day. Head to https://koorana.com.au/tourism/ to find out more.
- The Capricorn Caves, located just off the Pacific Coast Way, offers everything from easy guided walking tours to wild adventure tours, exploring the tropical limestone caves and breath-taking views from the summit. For more information and to book a tour, head to http://capricorncaves.com.au/.
- Explore the local markets. Head to https://yeppooncapricorncoast.com.au/ to check out when the markets are on. Purchase fresh produce at the Yeppoon Community Markets every Saturday morning, and check out the local arts, crafts and food at the Fig Tree Markets (first Sunday of the month), Emu Park Markets (third Sunday of the month) and the Causeway Lake Markets (fourth Sunday of the month).
- Swim, fish, paddle or play at the Causeway Lake and grab some fish and chips while you’re there!
- Drive over to Emu Park and take a short stroll along the Centenary of Anzac Walk, which wraps around the coast offering fantastic views of the Islands.
- Eat at one of the many local cafes and restaurants in Yeppoon – from Beaches Bistro at Rosslyn Bay, to the Keppel Bay Sailing Club on the beach front, Lure Living along the foreshore and Cocomo Express along James Street – there’s so many delicious options to choose from!
