Service 20 goes from Emu Park (near the roundabout) along the coast and via Yeppoon to Stocklands Shopping Centre then on to Rockhampton Airport. The buses run approximately hourly - please consult the timetable. Link below.

Service 29 goes from Emu Park (near the roundabout) and takes the direct inland route via Cawarral to Stocklands Shopping Centre. However ... this service is fundementally for school kids and only runs twice daily, morning and afternoon, and ONLY on school days. Adults are welcome to use this service and the journey is quite a bit shorter than on the 20 Service. The 29 Service departs Emu Park at 7:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
