Bedrock reaches the coast at Ross Creek and dominates much of the coast between here and Cocoanut Point, 17 km to the south. The main Emu Park Road runs close to the coast because of the backing higher ground and provides good access to all the beaches.On the south side of Wreck Point lies 2.5 km long Lammermoor Beach (1366). The beach is backed by a casuarina-covered foredune, with houses in the north and the main road running right behind the southern half of the beach. The best access is at a small bluff-top car park in the centre of the beach, below which are a few rocks across the beach. The beach is composed of medium sand and has a relatively steep high tide beach, with a lower gradient, 100 m wide, continuous low tide bar, that widens in the southern end where a small creek drains across the beach. The beach ends at the low energy Statue Rocks.

Swimming

The most popular beaches are Cooee Bay and Lammermoor Beach, with rocks dominating Wave Point and Statue Bay, while Rosslyn Bay is given over to boating activities.

Surfing

Chance of low, spilling waves at Cooee and Lammermoor beaches.

Fishing

Most shore fishers use the Rosslyn Bay boat harbour breakwaters, while you can also fish from the several rocky points at high tide.

General

These five beaches are a southern extension of Yeppoon and are very accessible either from the backing streets or the main road. They are mainly used by locals and largely bypassed by the tourists enroute to Rosslyn Harbour and the ferries to Great Keppel Island.
