About Capricorn CoastHome to a throng of award winning resorts, a host of visitor attractions and an abundance of undiscovered treasures, the Capricorn Coast is a truly unspoilt paradise full of relaxation and adventure. Fossick for sapphires, gold and 'thunder-eggs'; discover limestone caves; uncover ancient Aboriginal Rock Art; be witness to baby crocodiles as they hatch from their eggs; follow the flight of the small bent wing bats; enjoy camp drafts; picnic races; or a taste of outback life on a farm stay. Yeppoon is the Coast's major town, which has retained its village style appeal, yet offers a variety of wonderful restaurants, accommodation and shops. Be sure to visit the towns of Rockhampton, Gladstone, Angus Waters and the historic town of 1770, touched by the legacy of Captain James Cook. And for a true getaway experience, the popular island escapes of Great Keppel Island, Heron Island, Lady Elliot Island and Lady Musgrave Island beckon just off the Coast.
