Yeppoon hub on track for edgy makeover

Yeppoon hub on track for edgy makeover

Who said that urban street art is only reserved for the big smoke?

Many may remember one of our region’s first tastes of ‘urbanism’ back in 2015 following the unforgettably destructive Cyclone Marcia when Capricorn Enterprise supported a collective of local artists, namely ‘Out There Co’ to bring to life the story of the infamous late night bakery in Pie Alley.

With the buzz of this masterpiece stirring emotions across the Capricorn Coast, we soon witnessed CQ University, Emu Park, Barry Street and Yeppoon Town Centre coming to life as modern street art began spreading vivid colour across our community.

With a style of storytelling that is truly spectacular, ‘Out There Co’ have certainly delivered a splash of personality to local parts of our world.

And now… rumour has it that the Capricorn Coast Visitor Information Centre located on Ross Creek roundabout in Yeppoon is about to become a lot more colourful over the coming weeks!

Capricorn Enterprise has again commissioned the magical talents of Bill and Luke Gannon to re-invent the front of the Visitor Information Centre with an impressive new design that will ‘wow’ visitors from far and wide.

Scheduled to begin taking shape during the first week of July, the inspiring showcase is set to take a maximum of five days.

Artwork will incorporate the official accredited ‘i’ which continues to denote the genuine, high quality delivered by our fabulous Centre volunteer ambassadors, along with key messages of what visitors can find inside.

Capricorn Enterprise CEO, Mary Carroll is extremely excited about the project.

“A well-serviced and eye-catching visitor information centre can mean the difference between visitors spending a day or choosing to stay longer to see the local sights and spend in the local economy.”

“Our friends at ‘Out There Co’ have spread some special flare in our coastal region and beyond over the years and we are thrilled to have their artistry prominently displayed to entice visitors to seek more information as soon as they hit Yeppoon.”

The Visitor Information Centre provides a hub for guests to our region to plan and book their stay in Capricorn with the assistance of one of 30 local volunteers.

“Impressively, our wonderful volunteers greet nearly 15,000 visitors per year originating from Australia, or further abroad locations including Germany, France and Nordic regions.”

As details of the artwork are staying under wraps, we invite anyone visiting or staying local these school holidays to head on down to the Capricorn Coast Visitor Information Centre and be surprised by ‘Out There Co’ at work!
