Yeppoon is a coastal town in Central Queensland, Australia with a colourful history dating back to 1865. Yeppoon is renowned for its beaches, tropical climate, and the islands out on the bay. Twenty-five minutes from the city of Rockhampton, Yeppoon is the principal town on the Capricorn Coast, a string of seaside communities stretching more than 150 kilometres from north to south.
The pristine beaches and shallow coves provide a quiet yet vibrant destination both for tourists and miners settling down in Central Queensland. Offshore, there are 27 islands to explore including Great Keppel Island which is only 30 minutes by boat. Yeppoon is part of the Rockhampton Region Local Government Authority. It is located on Keppel Bay, around 700 km north of the state capital, Brisbane, and 40 km from Rockhampton City.
