What’s on in our town – Yeppoon


Light the Night 2016

Everyday 35 Australians are diagnosed with blood cancer; it takes more lives than breast cancer and melanoma. You can bring a little light into the lives of people with blood cancer by supporting a Leukaemia Foundation Light the Night walk.

Walk with us to help more Australians beat blood cancer through research and support. Gather with family and friends to shine a beautiful lantern; gold to remember someone, white for your own journey or blue to show you care.

Reserve your lantern today and receive your kit so you can reach your fundraising target at www.lightthenight.org.au

Yeppoon Community Markets

Farmers Markets encourage the community to buy locally from their farmers. Why? Because it helps keep a local business going, it reduces the energy used on transporting foodstuffs but I guess mainly it’s fresher and therefore better to eat. Bring the family down and do your produce shopping for the week.
