Capricorn Coast National Park

Capricorn Coast National Park, Yeppoon 4703

Ph: 137468 / 1300130372



Capricorn Coast National Park has four separate accessible sections that can be enjoyed in a 30 minute drive between Yeppoon and Emu Park. Mangroves, dry rainforest, tussock grassland and open eucalypt forest provide a wonderful contrast to the blue waters of Keppel Bay. Rocky outcrops along the Capricorn Coast are the result of violent volcanic eruptions millions of years ago. Enjoy a beachside picnic at Bluff Point day-use area and take the 2.3 kilometre walking track for fabulous views over islands and hinterland. Watch sea turtles from the high cliffs of Turtle lookout. Explore Double Head along a sealed 365 metre walking track and visit Fan Rock lookout, a fan-shaped cliff formation with hexagonal basalt columns.
