Yeppoon Beach, site of the surf lifesaving club, is located at the end of Yeppoon’s main shopping street.
The beach is 1.4km long, extending from the low intertidal rocks at Spring Head almost due south to the mouth of Ross Creek, where there is a small breakwater. Over the years, erosion has plagued the beach and today it is backed by a continuous seawall, behind which there are parking areas and a grassy reserve, with the main road paralleling the northern half of the beach.
The surf club is located in the reserve toward the northern end of the beach and the Keppel Bay Sailing Club toward the southern end. The seawall is reached by the waves at high tide, resulting in little to no high tide beach and a flat, 200m to 300m wide low tide beach.
The beach is partially protected from waves by the Keppel Island group, and waves average only 0.5m. Yeppoon beach is relatively safe, ; just be careful at low tide when you have to walk a long way to reach the water, and near the southern Ross Creek entrance which has both deeper water and strong tidal currents.
Yeppoon Surf Life Saving Club has proudly served its community for almost 100 years.
