Keppel Bay Islands National Park

The Keppels,
Free Entry
Keppel Bay Islands National Park, off Central Queensland's Capricorn Coast, protects 13 islands in the Keppel Group and is surrounded by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

Dingo

Dingo, Central Highlands Area
This busy small town sits on two major highways that service the beef, timber and coal industries. Up to a thousand vehicles can pass through in one day and it is not unusual to see ten triple road trains outside the roadhouse.

Yeppoon

Yeppoon, Livingstone Area
Yeppoon is situated 38 kilometres north east of Rockhampton, and is the gateway to Great Keppel Island and the wonders of the Southern Great Barrier Reef. Meander down Yeppoon’s main street or stroll the esplanade to browse beach-chic boutiques and surf stores and keep an eye out for one of the many new street art murals adorning local walls.

Comet

Comet, Central Highlands Area
Comet is located in the Central Highlands, 39 kilometres east of Emerald on the Capricorn Highway. Comet was established in association with the westward development of the railway line from Rockhampton.

Capricorn Coast

Yeppoon, Livingstone Area
The Capricorn Coast is exciting, diverse and breathtakingly beautiful. Visitors to the Coast enjoy golden days and balmy, moonlit evenings with the brilliant sunsets and scents of the tropics as well as the crispness of a temperate climate.

Wycarbah

Wycarbah, Rockhampton Area
Without its main attraction, Wycarbah, to the south-west of Rockhampton, would be bypassed by most. This little town is located about 25 minute drive from Gracemere. However, as a result of an ancient lava flow, a great collection of rather ordinary looking rocks (on the outside) have congregated at a place nearby called Mt Hay.

Minerva Hills National Park

Springsure, Central Highlands Area
Free Entry
Spectacular jagged peaks provide a scenic backdrop to this Central Queensland national park. Formed by volcanic activity millions of years ago, Mount Boorambool and cliff-fringed Mount Zamia dominate the landscape today.

Bluff

Bluff, Central Highlands Area
Bluff is located in the Central Highlands, 94 kilometres east of Emerald on the Capricorn Highway. A must see for rail enthusiasts, Bluff is the major interchange station for coal trains. Many trains are over two kilometres long.

Child Island Dive Site

The Keppels,
Child Island is one of the most exciting dive sites at the Keppel Islands off Yeppoon. Being a fair distance offshore, Child Island is best dived when conditions are calm, but this site nearly always has the best visibility in the area.

Mount Morgan

Mount Morgan, Rockhampton Area
Mount Morgan is a historical mining town nestled on the Dee River a short 38 kilometre drive from Rockhampton. The town is rich in nineteenth century Queensland colonial history and has artefacts and relics from the gold rush days that visitors can experience.
