Yeppoon – a beachy resort town and gateway to the Southern Great Barrier Reef – sits in Queensland’s crystalline coast on the Coral Sea. Places to stay in Yeppoon come in the form of plush, beachfront apartments with ocean views from every terrace, convenient motels for those arriving by car, and family-run boutique hotels. We’ve rounded up a selection of the best Yeppoon hotels you can book today on Culture Trip.

1. Salt Apartments Yeppoon, for lounging on Main Beach

Right on the shoreline of Yeppoon Main Beach, each apartment here has a view over the ocean. Sprawling terraces with loungers and outdoor dining make the most of the beach view, and glass sliding doors can be left open to blend indoors with outdoors. Living areas come with marble-topped, full kitchens, comfy sofa seating and indoor dining. Choose between a day at the beach – just across the road – or lounging by the pools at Yeppoon Lagoon next door.

2. Coral Inn Boutique Hotel, for a family-friendly feel

Somewhere between a B&B and boutique hotel, there’s a family-run feel to the Coral Inn. A clapboard building in blue and yellow immediately sets the beachy vibe, which continues in hammocks strung up above a sandpit. There’s a pool for a cooling dip, and plenty of space for kids to run around on the lawn. Rooms come with kitchenettes, and huge tropical fish feature walls are a reminder that the Southern Great Barrier Reef awaits just off-shore. In the morning, a hearty home-cooked breakfast is served à la carte, and evening drinks come courtesy of the beach-shack-style bar.

3. Beaches on Lammermoor Apartments, for easy access to the Keppel Islands

At Beaches on Lammermoor, a twisting, lagoon-like swimming pool runs like a river past cute, self-contained apartments. As the name suggests, this place is located right next to the bone-white sands of Lammermoor Beach and it’s just a few minutes away from Keppel Bay Marina, where boats await to whisk you away to the Keppel Islands. Each apartment has a breezy, beachy feel with pristine white walls and shaded verandas overlooking the ocean. There are one-bedroom apartments for couples, and two- and three-bedroom offerings for groups and families.

4. Villa Mar Colina, for evening family barbecues

Villa-style accommodation with terracotta rooftops and peach-hued walls give this place a Mediterranean feel. By the water at Bluff Point, each villa’s terrace has a view overlooking the ocean. One-, two- and three-bedroom villas are on offer for couples, families or groups, and come with everything you need for self-catering in fully stocked kitchens. Upgrade to a two-bedroom deluxe villa and entertain on the rooftop terrace, or go all-out on the Penthouse and soak under the stars in your own hot tub. If you’re feeling social, head to the communal swimming pool fed by a waterfall, or make use of the barbecue area on sunny evenings.

5. Oshen Holiday Apartments Yeppoon, for sleek modern vibes

Panoramic views of the Keppel Islands and the Southern Great Barrier Reef are on offer at these swish apartments on the Bluff. One-, two- and three-bedroom self-catering apartments are all decked out in sleek modernity, with pristine white walls and pops of teal reminiscent of your seaside locale. Each apartment has a private balcony or terrace to take advantage of the ocean air, and there’s a shared pool terrace overlooking the beach, too. Families are well catered for here with a games room, a book swap in the breezy atrium and barbecue terrace.

6. Sail Inn Motel, for ease of travel

Covered parking is ideal for those arriving by car, and this motel is within five minutes’ walk of the many shops, restaurants and bars that line the waterfront in Yeppoon. Standard queen, king and family rooms offer comfortable spaces for those on a budget, and come with kitchenettes for a bit of independence.

This collection of luxe beachside apartments is the ideal base for those looking for a break by the sea. Glass sliding doors lead from open-plan living areas to sea- or town-view balconies in every apartment, so you can let that ocean breeze in. Interiors are contemporary and chic, with bright white walls and soft grey furnishings. Yeppoon’s buzzing beachside Lagoon and waterpark are both just a five-minute walk away, and the town’s shopping areas, restaurants and pubs are on your doorstep.

8. Discovery Parks – Coolwaters, Yeppoon, for the ultimate in seclusion

While hotels in Yeppoon itself are in the heart of the action, Discovery Park in Coolwaters sits a little way south, on a blissfully quiet section of the coast. Those seeking a bit of privacy should look no further, as cabins and units are spread out across lush grounds, hidden between the palm fronds. Kitchens have everything you need for self-catering, and private verandas provide a spot for an evening tipple as the sun goes down. This place is perfect for families as the grounds are dotted with play parks, barbecue areas and an on-site swimming pool and water park.
