As you crest the hill, Emu Park lies spread before you.
A pretty, clean and friendly
village with the Coral Sea and the offshore islands providing a backdrop.

Early morning over Fisherman's Beach Holiday Park:
Green, leafy, spacious, friendly, affordable and right on the beach.
At Fisherman's Beach we can accommodate everything from the largest fifth
wheelers to the smallest tent. Our grassy sites have good water pressure,
reliable power and sullage disposal. Do we have a 'dump point'? Yes, in
fact we have two.
You can relax in the peaceful atmosphere of the park or you may prefer golf, fishing, lawn bowling, tennis, swimming, boating, walking, sunbathing, crafts, indoor bowls, t'ai chi, mah-jong or just sitting around and chatting. Each winter we host many enthusiastic lawn bowlers who play at the adjacent bowling club. There is a heated outdoor swimming pool close to the park but the beach is even closer.
The picture (right) was taken halfway along the path to Fisherman's Beach. That's how close we are to the ocean yet protected from strong winds by a strip of beautiful, dense foliage.
A belt of dense foliage protects the park from strong winds.
Our new shopping complex with a large Drakes store with
and competitive pricing, a new
Jolt café/restaurant and plenty
of parking space.
From the caravan park the shops are a five minute walk through leafy Bell Park.
Jolt licensed café/restaurant is a very
welcome addition to Emu Park's attractions. It is clean and bright with
alfresco dining if desired. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food
and coffee are excellent.
Constable Jaclyn Wickham sometimes drops in to Jolt for
a take-away coffee. While she waits, she chats to locals and
holiday-makers, and if the café is busy, Jackie helps out by clearing the tables. Where, other than in Emu Park, would
you find such a convivial atmosphere? The photo shows her with Pam from Fisherman's Beach Holiday Park.
Emu Park Historical, Railway and Maritime Museum.
Fuel is available from the garage in the village centre. Eat-in or take-away food is available from several outlets including the local pub, two bakeries, a pizza shop, fish and chip shops and Jolt's café/restaurant. Each Friday evening the nearby bowling club puts on mouth-watering meals.
Do you like a shopkeeper with a sense of humour?Every third Sunday in the month there is an excellent Picnic Market - like a farmer's market - held in adjacent Bell Park where fresh food (and much more) is available at very good prices. Yeppoon is only a twenty minute drive away and the city of Rockhampton is a forty minute drive.
The centre precinct of a wonderfully imaginative project.To the left of the picture, a boardwalk has been constructed which winds along the rocks to that famous icon, the Singing Ship (featured in the next section). As of 2015 the boardwalk terminates at a viewing platform, however the plan is to extend it down to Fisherman's Beach.
When you align the horizon in the window with the real horizon
you are faced with a scene
of boats landing troops who are storming up the dunes towards you, rifles at the ready.
Emu Park's salute to Captain James Cook.The Singing Ship was designed to 'sing' as the wind blew across its vertical pipes. It succeeded a bit too well and, from its vantage point on the hill, could be heard over a wide area on a breezy day. The Council eventually had it muted. Kele Park, where the 'Ship' is located, is well worth a visit and the hill gives spectacular views along the coast.
One view from the Singing Ship; some of the offshore islands.
At the foot of the hill is a boat ramp with parking for
cars and boat trailers. Offshore are several
islands including Great Keppel Island which can be visited by ferry from nearby Rosslyn Bay.
The slope below the Singing Ship gives a view across Fisherman's
And from the hills opposite, looking back ...
... the Singing Ship is visible on the headland to the right,
the boat ramp is in the centre, more offshore islands
are just visible on the horizon. From here, Fisherman's Beach Holiday Park is hidden amongst the trees.
From up on the hill near the "Singing Ship" you can look down
at Fisherman's Beach and see people swimming, boating and fishing, the blue
water set off by the dark green hills beyond.
This bay is our park's 'back yard'. The beach is only metres away via a short path through the foliage-covered dunes. At night, as you lie in bed, you can hear the sound of the waves breaking onto the sand. You awake in the morning to the song of the many birds in the park - 83 varieties at last count. A great way to greet the day!
And the weather? Usually day after day of blue skies and sunshine.
Before the year 2000 you would have stood a reasonable chance of seeing an emu around Emu Park but not today. The road signs are still in place, more as a precaution than anything else. Unfortunately those signs will probably be the nearest thing to an emu you'll see in Emu Park, but . . . you just never know.
