The town’s esplanade is currently under construction but with its backdrop of sparkling sea and island cluster, it’s still an easy place to soak up the atmosphere. If you’ve visited before you’ll be surprised that grassy areas, palms and covered picnic and play areas have been replaced with a water playground for young kids and something else is happening at the moment…we’ll see. Excavation everywhere.
The townships along our stretch of coast have a variety of restaurants, accommodation, shops and galleries. Annual events include the Pineapple Festival held in September and The Great Australia Day Beach Party in January. The Capricorn Coast provides the traveller with something different and is a sweet place to hang out if you’re on holidays.
There are plenty of boutiques and surf stores and you can have a bite to eat at one of the beautiful cafes or restaurants in town. It’s walking distance of the town centre to Figtree and Ross Creeks, but if you’re looking for the home to the Black and Little Red flying foxes, they’ve relocated to Cooee Bay because of all the construction. A beautiful attraction that sets us apart, at sunset, thousands of bats take to the sky to head off to their feeding grounds. It’s pretty cool to see and they are surprisingly coordinated about the whole thing. Like watching schools of fish move about. Perhaps not that graceful but you’ll get it when you see it.
It’s not all about Yeppoon. There are great places all about 30 minutes or under from here. Head south ten minutes to the marina and catch a transfer to the Islands. Further ten to Causeway Lake, ten to Emu Park, and ten to Keppel Sands. Head north to Capricorn Resort Golf Club, further to the Zoo, and further still up to Byfield and find some great spots to swim in the National Parks.
