"Great for Young Families and Retiree's"
Yeppoon is a wonderful place to raise young children with many beaches and parks. Good selection of schools. Wouldn't reccommend teenagers as there is little to do for them. Few job opportunities especially now Great Keppel Resort has closed and likihood of reopening at least 5+ years away. It is fairly remote with closest town Rockhampton 40km away. However, it is ideal for retiree's who wish peace and quiet with some facilities. There are plenty of Doctors and a small Hospital if you can call it that - more a outpatient clinic with most patients transferred to Rockhampton Base Hospital. It is definitely a lifestyle location that we choose over 10 years, so if you are into fishing and boating - friendly locals, not too isolated, a great climate (although summers can be hot) away from the maddening crowds then this is the place.
