Potential travellers should check the status of individual events and establishments with regard to the coronavirus outbreak.

As governments across the world implement social distancing in the efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19, operators on the Capricorn Coast, near Rockhampton, are offering some of their signature experiences virtually.

While regular travel may be off the cards for the foreseeable future, virtual escapism is open to everyone with an internet connection.

Here are some places to take a tour — without leaving the couch.

Pumpkin Island

Pumpkin Island … catering to only 34 guess.

Catering to only 34 guess, social distancing is not a new concept to Pumpkin Island. Guests can even rent the whole island to themselves.

Pumpkin Island is fortunate to be close to the mainland to offer a quick getaway, yet ultimate seclusion with very few guests.

This allows safe social distancing whilst enjoying fresh air, beautiful nature and an own self-contained cottage with minimal interaction with other guests or staff, if that is the desire.

Singing Ship … set against a coastal vista of blue seas.

Keppel Bay Marina

Located at the gateway to the Keppel Group of Islands, Keppel Bay Marina claims to be the friendliest and largest marina in Northern Australia.

Keppel Kraken … a water-play feature quite unlike any other.

Set against a coastal vista of blue seas and with Great Keppel Island in the distance, the Singing Ship at Emu Park is a majestic monument that commemorates the area’s legacy of the historical explorations of Captain James Cook, who discovered this bay in May 1770.

The Centenary of Anzac Memorial Walk

The reflective memorial boardwalk and its gateway gallery entry are the focal point to this thought-provoking walk.

The walkway is an emotional, reflective experience and provides a timeline of WW1’s many major battles of war.

Villa Mar Colina … set high on Bluff Point in Yeppoon.

Villa Mar Colina

Set high on Bluff Point in Yeppoon, boasting stunning views across Keppel Bay, long sandy beaches and the Keppel Isles, Villa Mar Colina is close to Yeppoon’s Central Business District where visitors will find restaurants, plenty of shopping and access to Yeppoon’s main beach.
