About Yeppoon

Yeppoon is a coastal metropolis and locality within the Shire of Livingstone, Central Queensland, Australia. Yeppoon is renowned for its seashores, tropical climate, and the islands out on the bay. 25 mins from the town of Rockhampton, Yeppoon is the essential town on the Capricorn Coast, a string of beach communities stretching more than 150 kilometres from north to south. The beaches and shallow coves offer a destination both for travelers and miners settling down in Central Queensland.

Offshore, there are 27 islands consisting of Great Keppel Island that is 20 kilometres from Yeppoon. The Capricorn Coast was a part of the conventional lands of the Darumbal Aboriginal people. Yeppoon was first settled by using the Ross family in 1865 who took up massive landholding along the period of the Capricorn Coast. Fruit vegetation, farm animals, and wool were the foremost industries of the early metropolis.

A short-lived duration of sugar cane growing accompanied from 1883 to 1903, which failed because of unseasonal rains and lack of monetary backing. Along with other sugar growing areas of Australia, South Sea Islanders were used as labourers on the sugar plantations, often without their consent. Pineapples, mangoes, and other tropical fruit became the mainstay of neighborhood agriculture inside the new century, with cattle grazing and fishing also contributing to the local economic system.
