Rosslyn Bay Boat Harbour is the starting point for an adventure where you can discover the Keppel bunker group of islands and the Great Barrier Reef.
The areas of the Great Barrier Reef off
Central Queensland are some of the most stunning stretches of the reef in existence, and here
you will find a mixture of tropical and sub-tropical fish and coral mixing in crystal clear waters.
Snorkelling, diving, reef-walking or just leaning over the side of the boat you'll be able to appreciate one of the world's great natural wonders.
The islands you can access from Rosslyn Bay include Great Keppel Island - one of Australia's most popular holiday destinations, North Keppel Island, Pumpkin Island and Barren Island. Regular passenger vessels depart the boat harbour for these islands.
If you'd like to relax on the beautiful white beaches of an island
paradise, then Great Keppel Island is just what you're looking for.
There are three styles of accommodation available at Mercure Resort Great Keppel Island. Garden rooms are situated close to all of the resort facilities. Beachfront rooms are unrivalled for location. Just 50 metres to the beach and close to all facilities. Hillside Villas are air conditioned for maximum comfort.
Is fishing your idea of a great holiday? Regular fishing charters leave the boat harbour, or if you would rather keep your feet planted on terra firma throw a line in at the Causeway lake.
The lake is well known for water sports, safe swimming and good fishing and is a popular family picnic spot.
To the south of Yeppoon is Emu Park, home to the Singing Ship. This distinctive memorial was erected for the Captain James Cook bi-centenary celebration and is inspired by his ship, the "Endeavour", and it overlooks the Keppel Group of islands.
Another great island vantage point is Wreck Point, Cooee Bay, home to the annual World Cooee Competition.
