With a stunning backdrop of offshore islands, the sparkling azure of the Pacific and towering Norfolk pines, Yeppoon has built a reputation as both a visually striking tourist town and a saviour for summer tastebuds (plenty of mangos come from Yeppoon). If island hopping is your thing, you have found yourself one terrific launching pad, with the Great Keppel Bay Islands a ferry flutter away. However, if terra firma is more your thing, there is plenty of great shopping, outstanding dining and a truly warm atmosphere, but keep your eyes peeled and upward around sunset as thousands of black and little red flying foxes spectacularly fill the skies – visual, batty splendour.
The Queen Street Hall in Yeppoon stands on land traditionally owned by the Darumbal people. The name ‘Yeppoon’ is possibly from the words ‘Yeppen-Yeppen’, meaning thunder
Presented by Keppel Coast Arts.
