The Yeppoon heritage railway precinct has been identified as a priority site to be revitalised under the state 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 hectares Yeppoon heritage railway precinct is located in Yeppoon's central business district, approximately one kilometre from the beach, and features the heritage listed Yeppoon railway station building.

Community workshops

Economic Development Queensland will be conducting workshops on 16 and 17 June to discuss the future use of the heritage railway building and platform, and the final look and feel of the open green spaces in the precinct.

An online survey will also be available from 1 June to 30 June 2017 for community feedback on these important elements of the redevelopment.

Responses from both the workshops and the online survey will assist with the final master plan for the precinct.

In February 2017, indicative concept designs were presented at community information sessions. Outcomes from these sessions produced some exciting ideas however, the future use of the heritage railway building and the final form of the green spaces remains open for community comment.

The workshops will be held at the Yeppoon Town Hall on:

Date: Friday 16 June
Time: 5 pm – 6.30 pm

Date: Saturday 17 June
Time: 11 am – 12.30 pm
