Illawong is a beach front house with magnificent views to the Pacific Ocean, Keppel Islands and Roslyn Bay Harbour. It is only a short stroll across the road to magnificent Farnborough Beach. It is a few minutes drive to Yeppoon CBD (1.7k'S) and is within walking distance if you would like a night on the town. There is also a small grocery store / take away shop and Board / Pushbike Hire shop within a few minutes walk. Illawong is an old style house with three bedrooms, open plan living area/kitchen. It has one bathroom and toilet. It also has a large living area under the house. A great family home.

GOLF - It is a five minute drive to Mecure Capricorn Resort, which features the Capricorn Resort Golf Club being a 36 hole, world class golf course.

ROSLYN BAY HARBOUR AND GREAT KEPPEL ISLAND- The house has views of the Roslyn Bay Harbour and the Keppel Islands. It is a ten minute drive to the harbour which is the gateway to the Keppel Islands, including Great Keppel Island, North Keppel Island, Humpy Island, Pumpkin Island (now XXXX Island). Snorkelling around the islands is breathtaking.

FISHING - There are many fishing areas close to the house, including beach fishing right at your door step. There is also Fishing Creek situated at the end of Farnborough Beach, you can drive along the beach or gain access via a dirt road off Mecure Capricorn Resort. There is also a great family fishing spot off the beach and creek bank at Ross Creek, Yeppoon. There are quite a few Fishing Charters that operate out of Roslyn Bay Harbour and Keppel Bay Marina at Roslyn Bay.

SWIMMING BEACHES - There is a patrolled beach at Yeppoon Main Beach (within walking distance from the house) Farnborough Beach is directly across the road from the house, whilst it is not a patrolled beach, it is quite a safe swimming area.


There are many Restaurants in Yeppoon and surrounding areas. Roslyn Bay Harbour boasts two award winning Restaurants being "Waterline Restaurant" and "Beaches Bistro". There is also the Capricorn Cruising Yacht Club at Roslyn Bay Harbour, which is open to the public. Fisherman's Co-op is located at Roslyn Bay which sells fresh locally caught seafood direct to the public, highly recommended.

Yeppoon has three main pubs, The Strand being newly refurbished on Yeppoon Main Beach has lovely and reasonably priced meals. The Keppel Bay Sailing Club has two locations both with great meals.

There are two main shopping centres in Yeppoon, one has Woolworths and Big W and the other has Coles and Target. The main street of Yeppoon has great little shops to explore, along with other well known shops.

Yeppoon has a Police Station, Courthouse, Mainroads Department, Hospital and Bus services to Rockhampton.

Fantastic Holiday Home

We loved our stay. So close to the beach and to Yeppoon itself. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house was ideal for us also having 3 children with us. Just perfect.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Great location! Fantastic views over the ocean & islands! Having everything at the house (linen & towels etc) is a huge bonus - just take yourselves & your food. The beach is just across the road and we caught fish off the beach! A most enjoyable weekend.
