This entry describes major suburbs within five km of central Yeppoon.

Barmaryee, immediately west of Yeppoon, was the site chosen by the Yeppoon Jockey Club for its racecourse in 1886. It had a stopping place on the railway (1909) from Rockhampton to Yeppoon. Barmaryee is mainly a rural/residential suburb.

Cooee Bay, immediately south-east of Yeppoon, has a small protected beach and a longer stretch extending south to Lammermoor. Its main civic feature is Daniel Park with various sports facilities initiated by the Cooee Bay Lammermoor Progress Association: a tennis complex (1976); a swimming pool (1987) and a multi-purpose outdoor centre.

Lammermoor, immediately south-east of Cooee Bay, was named after a speculative township promoted in the 1880s by Robert Ross in neighbouring Taranganba (see separate entry).

Hidden Valley, immediately west of Taranganba and south of Yeppoon, was possibly named after a pastoral run (c1886). Its residential section adjoins Yeppoon.

Pacific Heights is three km north of Yeppoon and has a residential area on its eastern side. It was formally named in 2000.
