Yeppoon Heritage Railway Precinct

The Yeppoon heritage railway precinct has been identified as a priority site to be revitalised under the government's Advancing our cities and regions strategy.

Advancing our cities and regions will see surplus and underutilised state property renewed and repurposed—breathing new life into communities across the state.

The Yeppoon railway line was officially closed in 2004 due to disuse. The 2.4 hectare Yeppoon railway station site is located in Yeppoon's central business district, approximately one kilometre from the beach, and features the heritage listed Yeppoon railway station building.

Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) continues to engage with stakeholders to gain an understanding of their aspirations for the rejuvenation of the Yeppoon railway precinct.

EDQ has completed an Expressions of Interest (EOI) process for the Yeppoon Station Quarter. EDQ will continue to work with shortlisted proponents through a Request for Development Proposals.
