Capricorn Coast beaches
Thirteen beaches stretch along Keppel Bay from Yeppoon to Emu Park, forming the Capricorn Coast. Picturesque bays are framed by rocky headlands, pockets of rainforest, peaceful estuarine waters and wetlands. The 18 islands of the Keppel group lie offshore, about 15 kilometres from Yeppoon. Access is from Rosslyn Bay Harbour south of town. The largest island, and the only one with facilities, is Great Keppel Island, with 17 beaches to explore and everything from safari tents through to resort accommodation.
