A day visit to Yepphoon, Queensland.

Down to Rockhampton to stay for awhile in winter of 2017, after we settled there travelled for a day trip for lunch to Yeppoon in Queensland, when we arrived the Cafe was closed (Monday only)!  Never mind another time perhaps.

We have visited Yeppoon before, this post is a different take on last years one.

Yeppoon is a coastal town and  Yeppoon is renowned for its beaches, tropical climate, and the islands out on the bay. Twenty-five minutes from the city of Rockhampton, a string of seaside communities stretching more than 150 kilometres (93 mi) from north to south. The beaches and shallow coves provide a destination both for tourists and miners settling down in Central Queensland. Offshore, there are 27 islands including Great Keppel Island which is 20 kilometres (12 mi) from Yeppoon.

The singing ship, it makes a noise via the wind.


Nothing like a pretty coloured tree, the light in the right places to show the different colours.

  1. I like the tree with the highlighted red and a singing ship is a good reason to visit Yeppoon.

    1. I was surprised to see such a lovely tree, never noticed it year before last - maybe because the sun shone on it last year.

  8. Again, wonderful photos, Margaret.

    We were staying at the caravan park at Emu Park back in the early 80s, when I was visited by curious emus as I stepped out of the amenities block! They didn't get a shock, but I did! My then husband knew what was happening and laughed his head off at my reaction! lol
