Yeppoon Information

Yeppoon in Queensland is a coastal resort town with a population of about 15,000 people. It is a very popular tourist destination and also one of Australiaís fastest growing towns.

The major drawcard for Yeppoon is the vast long stretches of white sandy beaches and the nearby Keppel Island. If you are looking for the perfect beach holiday then Yeppoon should be your number one destination to visit.

Lying just 15 kilometres off the coastline of Yeppoon is Great Keppel Island. The island is the largest out of 18 islands in the Keppel group and the most visited by tourists. There is a ferry service that will take you directly from Yeppoon to Great Keppel Islandís main beach.

Great Keppel Island is such a fantastic Island that currently there are development plans to build a massive tourist resort including a world class golf course which is due to be constructed soon in 2010.

The area around Yeppoon is also abundant with seafood. Fishing, snorkelling, diving, boating and all other water sports like waterskiing, jet skiing and wakeboarding are extremely popular.
