Emu Park, 19km south of Yeppoon, is the second-largest township on the coast – here you'll find yet more gorgeous coastal views and a good beach, patrolled on Saturday afternoons and Sundays from September to early May. Sights include the Singing Ship memorial – a curious monument to Captain Cook, comprising drilled tubes and pipes that emit mournful whistling and moaning sounds in the breeze – and a poignant reconstruction of Turkey's famed Anzac Cove landing site from WWI. This land belongs traditionally to the Darumbal people.
The drive south from Yeppoon and Rosslyn Bay to Emu Park passes three fine headlands with good views: Double Head, Bluff Point and Pinnacle Point. After Pinnacle Point, the road crosses Causeway Lake, a saltwater inlet that's a top spot for estuary fishing.
