Reflecting on the Capricorn Coast

Three separate groups recently packed their bags and headed 38 kilometres North East of Rockhampton to explore the best of the Capricorn Coast! During this tour, our travellers spent 5 nights in Yeppoon while filling their days exploring the region.

Andrew Fyfe, our Trade Travel Franchisee from Brisbane and our Trade Travel Tour Leader Belinda Patterson enjoyed taking our groups to visit this great region.

Throughout the tour, the groups visited some unmissable Queensland attractions and sights! This included visiting the Koorana Crocodile Farm (where most held a small crocodile!), High Valley Dawn Permaculture Farm – a two acre market garden which produces wonderful seasonal produce, and a trip to Water Park Tea Tree oil Farm which included a drift along Waterpark creek and a safari bus tour to learn about their production of tea tree oil.

The groups enjoyed a guided tour of Henderson Park Farm Retreat which is a family owned Brahman cattle property situated on the banks of Hedlow Creek. They enjoyed lunch at Ferns Hideaway with entertainment by Marto, also had a laugh at Footlights Theatre Restaurant and enjoyed other highlights such as visiting the Nob Creek Pottery, cruising the Fitzroy river with CQ River Cruises, and browsing the C.Q. Military and Artifacts Museum.

Back at the resorts, the groups enjoyed kicking their feet up with some happy hour fun, trivia, culinary delights, and even a cooking demonstration by the chef in the Paddock to Plate experience.

Check out what our groups had to say!

“A group from the Chapel Hill Probus Club embarked on Trade Travel’s six-day Capricorn Coast Discovery Tour.  As the organiser of the trip, I was pleased with the support given to me by Trade Travel Staff in setting up the tour.  On the tour itself, all went smoothly, the accommodation at Salt in Yeppoon and at the Rosslyn Bay Resort, was of a high standard, the meals were good, and the itinerary was varied and interesting.  Our Trade Travel host is to be congratulated on the care and attention she gave to our group throughout the tour.  This was a very enjoyable experience for us all.”

– John Alexander, Tour Leader – Chapel Hill Probus Club

“Probus travellers from Croydon Park, Ringwood Clocktower, Lilydale and Kerrimuir Probus Clubs had a wonderful holiday staying at Yeppoon Salt Apartments. The day tours were of great interest giving us new experiences. The speedy efficiency of Tracey O’Connell was greatly appreciated with her expertise in handling so many different requests associated before /during the tour, and also for speedily changing five flights of those who had decided to extend their holiday.  She has such a friendly and happy personality and she seems to be able to deal with every situation thrown at her! I would like to thank Kay and Grant for hosting our tour and looking after some of our personal requirements when we were unable to get to the stores. Everybody commented to me how pleased they were that you hosted the tour. Plus, we wouldn’t have had as much fun without Grant singing to us!”

– Anne Oughtibridge, Tour Leader – Ringwood Clocktower Probus Club
