Lammermoor Beach




S
cenic Highway, on which Lammermoor Beach is located, links Yeppoon and Emu Park. The main Emu Park Road runs close to the coast and provides good access to all the beaches.

Lammermoor Beach is a 2.5km long beach backed by a casuarina-covered foredune, with houses in the north and the main road running right behind the southern half of the beach. The best access is at a small bluff-top car park in the centre of the beach, below which are a few rocks across the beach.

Waves and Tide
Lammermoor Beach has a relatively steep high tide beach, with a lower gradient, 100m wide, continuous low tide bar that widens at the southern end where a small creek drains across the beach. The beach ends in low energy at Statue Rocks.

Swimming
The most popular beaches are Cooee Bay and Lammermoor, with rocks dominating Wave Point and Statue Bay, while Rosslyn Bay is given over to boating activities.

Surfing
There is a chance of low spilling waves at Cooee Bay and Lammermoor beaches.

Fishing
Most shore fishers use the Rosslyn Bay boat harbour breakwaters, while you can also fish from the several rocky points at high tide.

Boat
At the southern end of Lammermoor, Statue Bay provides easy access for launching kayaks and canoes. Just beyond Statue Bay is Rosslyn Bay, which is a 400+ berth marina, and has boat ramps for launching vessels of any size, in the shadow of the towering trachyte hill, Double Head.

Other
Vehicles are not allowed to be driven on Lammermoor Beach.

In the north, Wreck Point towers above the beach and provides the perfect vantage point to admire the view.

Facilities
A popular park with ample car parking is located midway along the beach plus several smaller access points along the beach.
