The jewel in the crown of the small beachside suburb of Cooee Bay, is Cooee Bay Beach itself. At only five hundred metres in length, Cooee Bay is certainly not the largest beach on the Capricorn Coast, but what it lacks in size, it more than makes up for in natural beauty.
Cooee Bay is a popular spot for swimming, fishing, playing and dog walking. Well behaved dogs are welcome and off leash times are before 8am and after 4pm daily. Livingstone Shire Council provides dog poo bags and a bin, and pooch-owners are expected to respect the doggy rules.
Council provides what's needed to clean up after your dog!
There are lots of beautiful shells on the beach and rock-pooling adventures to be had on each side of the bay. A small car park at the Wreck Point end of Cooee Bay offers beach access and there is a path leading down to the sand on the other side of the beach, too.
Cooee Bay is a couple of kilometres from the centre of Yeppoon. Just travel along the Scenic Highway over Ross Creek and follow the signs. For more on the beaches of the Capricorn Coast, please visit the Livingstone Shire Website.
