Just a scenic 20km drive south along the coast from Yeppoon, Emu Park is a peaceful coastal village with shady parks and picturesque beaches.
Once an exclusive beach resort at the turn of the 20th century, Emu Park is now appreciated as an idyllic seaside village with plenty of character.
Emu Park is home to the famous Singing Ship sculpture. Set against a spectacular coastal vista, the majestic monument commemorates the area’s
legacy of the historical explorations of Captain James Cook. A gentle sea breeze produces a musical sound through fluted pipes that will be long remembered.
Just below the Singing Ship is a viewing deck and boardwalk that makes up part of the new Centenary of ANZAC Memorial Walk. The boardwalk hugs coastline and features information on the First World Wars many major battles of war. At the lower end of the walk are several commemorative
art installations and a gatehouse that honours locals who fought in WW1.
Bell Park, located in the towns centre, is a peaceful oasis perfect for enjoying a fish and chip picnic or a kick of the footy with the family. The park
is home to several iconic events each year, hosting events like ‘Oktoberfest’ and the ‘Festival of the Wind’, as well as monthly markets. If you have
a boat or just like to wet a line, nearby Coorooman Creek is a popular local fishing spot with a quality boat ramp and pontoon.
Emu Park Main Beach is a calm beach with a surrounding grassy picnic area and is patrolled during peak times. There are many deserted beaches around Emu
Park that are excellent for walking and exploring the coastline, with dogs allow off leash on Fisherman’s Beach from the beach access
150 metres north of Bell Park (excludes weekends and public holidays)
