Destination Yeppoon

Capricorn Coast is a complete package offering beach to bush experiences. All within 30 minutes from Yeppoon, little townships dot our coastline, offering unique experiences to fill your holiday itinerary.
Emu Park: a small town on the Capricorn Coast, 21 kilometres south of Yeppoon. Home to the famous Singing Ship sculpture and Centenary of ANZAC Memorial Walk. Note: Singing Ship has lost her voice. It has to be blowing a gale to hear her sweet tunes these days.

Byfield/Five Rocks: 30 minutes north of Yeppoon is the lush area of Byfield National Park and State Forest where natural swimming holes are beautifully maintained for public use. Follow the 4WD only access to Stockyard Point, Five Rocks and Nine Mile Beach to find one of the few surfing areas on the coast.

Hedlow Creek: beautiful freshwater creek just 20 minutes West of Yeppoon. Mostly flowing through the private property around Mt Hedlow, the reserve is there for public access. Driving via a stock route and around ancient volcanic plugs, Hedlow Creek and the adjoining Lake Mary are home to an abundance of wildlife.
