For thrillseekers Capricorn offers unforgettable Southern Great Barrier Reef snorkelling adventures, as well as plenty of opportunities around the beautiful Keppel Islands for trekking and diving. Nearby Yeppoon is also a hub for water-based adventuring including stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking and sailing.
Go exploring in a 4WD, canoe or by foot in Byfield National Park, an ancient coastal rainforest, or get airborne with a helicopter flight further inland over the spectacular Carnarvon Gorge. Take a trip on the dark side and experience the eerie beauty of the Capricorn caves. And for a unique accommodation experience spend some time at a farm stay which offers mustering, lasso lessons and traditional Aussie home-style meals under the stars.
If you're serious about fishing then drop a line from one of the long stretches of beach, or go deepwater with a local guide who'll take you to the best spots. If you're new to deepwater fishing you can learn the ropes from an experienced skipper on a day trip that provides you with tackle, bait and a BBQ lunch.
