QLD Fraser Coast - Capricorn Coast National Park

Rocky outcrops along the Capricorn Coast were formed by volcanic eruptions about 130 million years ago.

Five reserves south of Yeppoon are protected in this small park — Double Head, Rosslyn Head, Bluff Point and Pinnacle Point, south of Yeppoon, and Vallis Park to the north. Vallis Park has no public access.

The park protects a variety of vegetation types from windswept low heath with scattered pandanus and she-oaks to eucalypt/wattle open forest, dry rainforest, tussock grassland and mangroves.

Location

Capricorn Coast is south of Yeppoon. You can see all the park’s sections in a short half-hour drive from Yeppoon to Emu Park.
