Yeppoon, QLD

Yeppoon is the gateway to the Capricorn Coast. The township has retained its village style appeal yet offers a variety of wonderful restaurants, accommodation, shops and galleries.

There are plenty of things to see and do throughout the town, from the new Yeppoon Lagoon public pool (pictured above and below) on the waterfront, to the memorable daytrips into the Great Barrier Reef, to soaking up the sun on its pristine beaches.

Yeppoon Public Pool

A charming esplanade with grassy knoll, palms and a covered picnic and play areas form a backdrop to a vista of sea, sky and islands. As well, annual events, including the Pineapple Festival held in September, enliven the town with gala activities, contests and displays. Local markets offer bargains a plenty.

The whole coastline is protected by the Great Barrier Reef and the Keppel Bay Islands. The Capricorn Coast has some of the most picturesque and safe swimming beaches in Australia.
