Sandy beach with good fishing spot
Lammermoor beach is situated south of Yeppoon on the Capricorn Coast beside the Coral Sea overlooking Keppel Bay. It's about 45 minutes drive from Rockhampton or 8 hours and 30 minutes from Brisbane. Lammermoor Beach is a long sandy beach, about 2.5 km long (1366mi), with some big rocks at the back of the beach that is pretty awesome to climb on. A lot of people use this rock area for fishing, especially during high tide. The beach is backed by a casuarina-covered foredune. The beach has a relatively steep high tide beach that widens at the southern end where a small creek drains across the beach.
