You can’t miss Yeppoon Lagoon when passing through the Yeppoon foreshore precinct; undoubtedly one of the most fun things to do in Yeppoon! Stretching over 2500 square metres, the resort-style pool is the perfect spot for swimmers of all abilities, including a shallow children’s play area with water fountains and an informal lap pool.
When visiting Yeppoon Lagoon, you’ll also be treated to amazing views from the infinity edge pool, from where you can gaze over the sparkling coastline all the way to the Keppel Islands.
There’s plenty of space to relax around the pool, too, so you could easily spend a full afternoon here. In addition, the surrounding parklands have picnic areas and barbecues if you want to stay for lunch, with many seats under the shade of tropical foliage.
Look out for the pelican lifeguards patrolling the swimming pool! These fun sculptures were named one of Australia’s best public art experiences and were installed directly inside the pool.
The Lagoon is definitely a must-do during your visit to Yeppoon, especially if you’re visiting with kids in tow!
Location: 3 Lagoon Place, Yeppoon
Hours: Daily from 6 am to 9 am
2 Spirit Stone
While on your way to Yeppoon Main Beach, don’t forget to stop at the ‘Spirit Stone’ sculpture.
Maurice Lempire designed the circular sculpture in 2001. It was built to commemorate the Federation of the Australian Colonies Centenary in 1901. This historical event made history when the six separate self-governing colonies of New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, Queensland, South Australia, and Western Australia formed one nation.
The sculpture has a unique ring-shaped design, with the middle of the circle overlooking the beach and beyond, so it’s an excellent spot to take some distinctive photos of your trip to Yeppoon.
Location: Anchor Drive, Rosslyn Bay, Yeppoon
Hours: Always open
3 Shell World
If you’ve ever strolled along the beaches collecting shells, you’ll love Shell World and its impressive display of over 20,000 shells!
Shell World is just a quick stop next to the tourist information centre, so you can stop by while picking up any maps or brochures you need for your stay in Yeppoon,
When looking through the vast collection, you’ll be surprised by how varied shells can be – and how beautiful they are. Even for adults, appreciating all the shells on display can be quite a nostalgic experience.
Every land, marine, and fossil mollusc is clearly labelled, alongside various corals and craft items. The shells have been sourced from all over the world, so it can be quite an educational visit.
The centre is operated by a team of passionate volunteers who are on hand if you have any questions and will let the kids pick up and touch some of the more interesting items. If you’re after unique souvenirs, the centre has some cute and budget-friendly gift ideas.
If you’re looking for family things to do in Yeppoon, we highly recommend stopping by Shell World.

4 Street art
Exploring Yeppoon’s colourful street art scene is a wonderful way to get to know the ins and out of this gorgeous coastal town.
You’ll spot murals all around the town, even bringing urban areas like the Queen Street car park and Barry Street to life. There is some beautiful artwork by community artists on Hill Street and, if you don’t mind the 20-minute drive, Emu Park has some fantastic murals too.
Don’t miss the street art in Pie Alley – just off Normanby Street; the artwork has a really interesting history. After Cyclone Marcia caused a lot of damage to the town, the community needed something to lift their spirits. And so, the Australian artists Bill and Luke Gannon painted the town’s first ever street art here to symbolise the hope and history of Yeppoon locals.
Walking around Yeppoon’s colourful alleyways and spotting the amazing murals is a really fun way to spend an afternoon in Yeppoon.
5 Visit Yeppoon’s beaches
Visiting Yeppoon beach is one of the best things to do in Yeppoon for free during a visit to this vibrant town.
Most of the action is at Yeppoon Main Beach, a long sandy bay with plenty of space for sunbathing, taking a stroll, or building sandcastles. The walkway is pram and wheelchair-friendly, allowing everyone to enjoy the sublime coastal views. If you plan to spend a day here, parking and picnic tables are conveniently located next to the beach.
If you’d prefer to escape the town centre and find some of Yeppoon’s more underrated beaches, you’ll be pleased to know that there are many amazing bays along this beautiful coastline!
Whether you want to relax or enjoy some outdoor activities, you’ll find plenty of options to suit your preference. If you want to unwind at a secluded bay, head to Zilzie Beach for a 600m stretch of sand with a picturesque palm tree. Emu Park Main Beach is perfect for surfing or head to Kinka Beach for excellent swimming facilities.
For amazing views and outdoor activities, such as kayaking, canoeing, and hiking, the wild Mulambin Beach might be more up your alley. Kemp Beach offers similar activities and is one of the area’s more secluded and beautiful bays.
Finally, Farnborough Beach is a fabulous family-friendly option, with lots of space for kids and dogs to run free. There’s also a park with BBQ facilities and a playground near the entrance by Yeppoon Main Street.
6 Take a sunset cruise
There’s no better way to appreciate the beauty of the Capricorn Coast than with a sunset cruise from Yeppoon.
You’ll depart from Keppel Bay Marina before taking in the surrounding coastline and islands, which look particularly mesmerising during sunset. The experienced and welcoming crew will point out any interesting views and ensure you have a memorable time.
Many 90-minute cruises greet guests with a glass of champagne upon boarding before a Cheese and Deli board is served, so it’s definitely one of the most romantic things to do in Yeppoon at night.
But anyone can enjoy a breathtaking boat trip here, and families will have a great time on the water. So no matter who you’re travelling with, a relaxing catamaran journey is a perfect way to end a day in Yeppoon!
A range of operators offers sunset cruises.
7 Wreck Point Lookout
Don’t forget your camera when you visit the magnificent Wreck Point Scenic Lookout. Located in the stunning Cooee Bay, just a short drive from the town centre, you’ll be treated to 360-degree views of the dazzling Capricorn Coast and the Keppel Islands.
To make the most of the scenery, wander around the nature trail and descend down 68 steps to see its shipwreck-inspired wooden art installation. The symbolic artwork and information boards tell the story of Selina, the 62-ton sailing ship that washed ashore near Cooee Bay in 1848.
After the short walk to the lookout, you’ll have fabulous views of Yeppoon, Lammermoor Beach, Rosslyn Bay, and Great Keppel Island. The lookout is great at any time of day, but the best time to come is sunset or dusk when the walkway is lit up with multicoloured lighting.

If you’re wondering what to see and do in Yeppoon and want to leave the area feeling inspired, you should consider visiting the Jet James Art Gallery.
Although Jet James is now an award-winning Australian artist, his life didn’t start that way. He was orphaned at age seven following an early childhood riddled with poverty, drug abuse, and domestic crime. His teenage years remained difficult, and drawing became one of his main escapes.
At age 19, he was mentored by the experimental printmaker Peter Indans while studying at Central Queensland TAFE. From there, he developed his love and exceptional talent for printmaking alongside painting and mixed media artworks. He has since won various accolades and his work has been displayed across New Zealand, Australia, and even in the USA and Europe.
Inside the gallery, you’ll see a great selection of Jet James’ creations alongside the artwork of other innovative local artists.
Aiming to make art accessible for everyone who needs it, the gallery is completely free. Many paintings have been turned into everything from ceramic mugs, totes, and socks, making for wonderful gifts or souvenirs for art lovers.
