Yeppoon has plenty of great cafes, classic
Yeppoon is a great option for those who are looking for an affordable holiday, where they simply poke around, walk in the rainforest, hang out, take the kids to the beach or splash in the pond.
Yeppoon’s foreshore recently underwent a redevelopment and with its backdrop of sparkling sea and island cluster, it’s 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 ones, an incredible lagoon precinct, refurbed skate park and kids playground.
Yeppoon has 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.
Yeppoon is low key but it’s quaint and there are lots of cool offerings to see and do. And heaps of them free, which makes for a great economical family holiday.
