On time and helpful staff. Sit outside if you can, the aircon was broken inside when we were on it, and it was hot as the boat was full. Anyways, would still use again.Thank you for taking the time to review. We're pleased you found our staff helpful. The aircon is being repaired to ensure your next trip is a little more comfortable. We look forward to you travelling with us again soon.

Cooberrie Park Wildlife Sanctuary

At Cooberrie Park Wildlife Sanctuary our friends become yours. Enjoy a day with our friendly residents. Pet, feed and interact with kangaroos, koalas, possums, birds, snakes, reptiles, and a whole lot more! Cooberrie Park is a wildlife sanctuary and takes care of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife that are then rehabilitated and released back to the wild. These animals are victims of car hits, dog and cat attacks, along with birds falling out of nests, sick and abandoned animals. Once recuperated, Cooberrie Park permanently houses wildlife that can't be released back to the wild and houses rescued animals from all across Australia, including animals from the RSPCA along with confiscated illegal wildlife. OUR HISTORY... Cooberrie Park began as a botanical garden more than 100 years ago. There are a number of very old European and South American trees at the park, as the original owner was a European Botanist. Then, 45 years ago animals started to arrive and visitors were able to visit and interact with the wildlife. To this day, Cooberrie Park has adopted the same ethos inviting visitors to get up close and interact with a wide range of animals. Cooberrie Park is open plan and the kangaroos have 25 acres to explore!

My wife and I had the most brilliant visit to the wildlife sanctuary this morning. This place looks after indigenous animals that would come to harm if not looked after here. The animals, reptiles etc are looked after wonderfully well, and being able to feed Kangaroos, Emu’s and other creatures really is a fun experience. The staff are great, and the highlight was watching my wife have a cuddle with a Koala, highly recommended.

It's great to see the improvement to the Yeppoon foreshore. The Kracken is fun for the whole family. Well spread out so there is heaps of space. Lots of great takeaway options for lunch across the road.

Bluff Point Walking Track

Reviewed By 966Steph30 - Melbourne, Australia

The views are sensational at the top. There are two entrances so you don't have to walk the entire way over...
If you're lucky you will get to see turtles or dolphins. There's always bush turkeys to see on the track...
Great walk for all ages but go early as you will get hot!!!

Shell World Yeppoon

Reviewed By JGDynamo - Halifax Region, Canada

We were in Shell World a couple of weeks ago as part of our drive around Australia, and it was a seriously impressive collection of shells! From all over the world they have hundreds of different ones, good signage and descriptions so you know what you are looking at. It’s just a couple of bucks to get in and you get a lot out of it. Very good stop if you are in Yeppoon.

Mount Jim Crow National Park

Reviewed By Andyrock81 - Rockhampton, Australia

The hike up Mt Jim Crow is relatively short, with reasonable fitness it was less than 30 minutes from the carpark to the top of the mountain. Follow the blue arrow markers and dots painted on the rocks at frequent intervals and you are in no danger of getting lost. The track has a couple of steep sections where hands and feet must be used for adequate grip. The Lookouts at the top provide excellent views of the surrounding countryside. It's also a good track to use for training if you are planning on climbing something more challenging in the future.
Ignore the warning on the sign about being unsafe to climb unless it is raining (wet rock is too slippery). It is quite safe for any able bodied person with a moderate level of fitness. Parking is available at the base of the mountain and no fees/permits are required.
