If a little more action is what you would prefer a day out exploring Bifield could be an option, or pack a picnic lunch and head for a drive along Farnborough beach, where you could throw in a line. A visit to Capricorn Caves is a wonderful experience, not to be missed. You can also catch a ferry across to Keppel Island, with Freedom Fast Cats or Keppel Konnections, to spend the day on the beach or experience one of their cruises. A Whale watching cruise is available from July to September. Sail the Keppels with Funtastic Cruises, fulfil your dreams on a 56ft Luxury catamaran with Rod and Ita. Hold a Koala at Cooberrie Park Wildlife Sanctuary, or a snake or a lizard or two if you dare. Experience the rush of being close to today’s link to the dinosaurs at Koorana Crocodile Farm.

Yeppoon does experience cooler nights in the winter months but in comparison to the southern states, it’s quite simply lovely weather.  The daytime winter temperatures on the Capricorn Coast are ideal for relaxing pool side with a good book and a cocktail, and the endless blue sky will have you forgetting grey old winter in no time.
