Whilst making our way up to Airlie Beach, we decided to do a pit stop and stay for a few nights somewhere along the way. That somewhere is Yeppoon. While its also the gateway to Great Keppel Island, Yeppoon is an attractive seaside town in its own right. Just south of Yeppoon, is Rosslyn Bay, the departure point for Great Keppel.
After having a few issues getting accommodation in Yeppoon, we stumbled across a 3 bedroom apartment which is right on the beach, which is a stroke of luck. During our first night, although we didn’t have too much luck in the last casino, my dad insisted on having another go and with his sense of finding these things, it didn’t take us long.
We took a ferry over to Great Keppel Island during the morning of writing this section. The landscape is ok though, expansive beaches, motionless blue water, bottle green forests peppered with walking tracks. But of course we didn’t really make the most of it and spent all of our time on the beach which we could’ve done anywhere I suppose. But it was still nice especially since it was the best sunshine we’ve had for a long while.
