Although a 4×4 is required for access to the main section of Byfield National Park, you can still check out Byfield State Forest in a 2WD vehicle.

Explore the many tracks through Byfield, perfect for walking, mountain-biking, horse riding, motorbike riding and four-wheel-driving. Some of the tracks are also utilised by timber trucks, so drive with care.

You’ll find picnic tables, toilet and BBQs in a few of the sections around the park. As Byfield National Park is quite secluded, make sure you pack plenty of water, food and a First Aid Kit.

Yeppoon Foreshore
‘Spirit Stone’ sculpture at Yeppoon Foreshore, QLD

The Yeppoon Foreshore and Main Beach area offers clear views overlooking Keppel Bay, connected people to the local beaches, boardwalks, splash park, Lagoon, skatepark and more.

While at the Foreshore, we thought we’d take a wander along the beachside footpath. We found a beautiful sculpture named ‘Spirit Stone,’ then headed down the steps to where the ocean water was crashing up the bottom of the staircase and ramp. The kids had loads of fun jumping the waves!

Wreck Point Lookout

For some shipwreck history to add to your things to do in Yeppoon, head up to Wreck Point Lookout in Cooee Bay.

Selina had departed the Pine River (north of Brisbane) on 31 July, 1847 and was Sydney-bound with a crew and a cargo of cedar logs. Unfortunately, Selina never arrived in Sydney and was not seen again until 15 months later when her shipwreck was discovered at the now aptly named Wreck Point.

Go on a BIG Things Hunt

For one of the quirkier free things to do in Yeppoon, head out on a Big Things hunt! Many travellers love to collect Aussie Big Things as they wander the country and you can find two within the Yeppoon area.

The first is the BIG Whale at Kinka Beach, which is also the location of the now abandoned Coral Life Marine Land. It’s such a shame to see this guy sitting empty and forgotten.

The second is the BIG Camel, which was a spontaneous find for us. This fella was really cool, life-like and HUGE to stand beside!

To extend your Big Things Hunt, head to the nearby town of Rockhampton to find the 6 Big Bulls.

Koorana Crocodile Farm

Crocodile

Koorana is an approved crocodile farm, which first began in 1981 as Queensland’s first commercial croc farm.

The owners started by capturing problem crocodiles from the wild (if they were deemed to be presenting a danger to people), which allowed them to sustainably build breeding stock. It was a win-win situation, giving rogue crocs a new lease on life rather than being shot.

These days the farm is home to over 3000 crocs! Book a 1.5 hr tour to see the crocodiles for yourself and learn all about their behaviour and mannerisms.

Koorana Croc Tour includes:

  • Intro chat on conservation and commercialisation
  • Video showing croc behaviour
  • Farm walk
  • Croc feeding
  • Get your photo with a small croc
  • Dec – Feb: Staff nest raids to collect eggs
  • Feb – May: Hatching season

What else is on offer at Koorana Crocodile Farm?

Head to the tourism complex to browse the homegrown crocodile leather products (all produced on the farm) and other souvenirs.

Tour guests have the opportunity to dine at the restaurant, which is open between 12pm and 1pm daily. At the restaurant you’ll find a variety of crocodile meals (like croc steak, croc burgers and croc pie) as well as non-crocodile meals.

9 thoughts on “🌴 13 FREE Things to do in Yeppoon, QLD (all family-friendly)”

  1. This looks like a super kid-friendly place to go! So many water parks and pools and such. I don’t have kids, so I’d probably be exploring the national parks or the reefs. Definitely looks like there’s something for everyone!

  2. What a beautiful little town! That’s incredible that Yeppoon Lagoon is free to visit, and I’ve never really been snorkeling before but I wouldn’t want to miss that if I was in the area. The day cruises also sound like a lot of fun, especially seeing some of the region’s more remote beaches!

  3. Great Keppel Island seems like an adventurous place to be in. I have tried snorkeling couple of times, may be I will want to do it again there. Nob Creek pottery store has an interesting collection, I may not be able to resist buying a piece or two. Great pictures.

  4. The Yeppoon Lagoon looks so gorgeous! Have to say though – I’ve wanted to snorkel on the great barrier reef for so long so going to Great Keppel Island sounds amazing. Would love to stop at the Nob Creek pottery store too. Would probably be difficult to ship home but pretty to look at!

    1. Well as long as you’ve got more than one day in Yeppoon, you could easily fit all of that in. I agree, posting the pottery back may be risky, but not impossible.

  5. It sure does seem like we would find lots to do if we visited Yeppoon. I can see why the Lagoon is a big draw. Although you would probably find me underwater at Great Keppel Island checking out the snorkelling or scuba diving. A stop at the unique rock formations at Capricorn National Park would round out a great visit. The variety in the national park sites is fascinating. You have me convinced I would need a long stay to check it all out.

    1. It sounds like you’re a bit more adventurous, taking a scuba dive off Great Keppel Island. You could easily spend a week in Yeppoon with a good mixture of relaxing and exploring.
