Rockhampton to Yeppoon

Travel along the Bruce Highway to the Yeppoon turn-off and as you head to the coast you'll see Mount Jim Crow and Mount Hedlow. These are just two of the many volcanic plugs which dot the landscape, testament to the area's violent geological past.

The journey from Rockhampton is a scenic trip that meanders through a real Australian bush landscape of rolling mountains, eucalypt trees and rich grazing land. Your first port of call on the coast is the tranquil seaside township of Yeppoon and jumping off point for Great Keppel Island. Your journey then continues along the coast, stopping off at the townships of Emu Park, Zilzie and Keppel Stands to explore their beautiful beaches and attractions, before completing the loop and returning to Rockhampton.

Rosslyn Bay to Emu Park

Lammermoor, Kinka, Mullambin and Kemp beaches, Cooee Bay and the Causeway Lake, all line the Capricorn Coast offering many pleasures, wonderful accommodation and so much beauty you will never want to leave. Take the coastal walk at Kemp Beach for magnificent views across the sparkling ocean to the Keppel Islands. Continue your journey south along the coastal Scenic Highway, stopping at the townships of Emu Park and Zilzie to explore their beautiful beaches and local attractions. Emu Park is home to the Singing Ship, a soaring white sculpture on the headland, designed as a monument to Captain Cook. Once an exclusive beach resort at the turn of the twentieth century, Emu Park is now appreciated as an idyllic seaside village and hub for local events.
