THE Yeppoon Visitor Information Centre went underwater after king tide waters washed up onto the land, but that didn't faze anyone.
It certainly didn't faze Yeppoon's Kyan Cane, 5, who made the most of the king tide on Saturday.
He pedalled his way through 5cm-high water on his bike when it came right up Ross Creek and on to the land.
Kyan and his younger brother Aidan, 3, come from a long line of fishing fanatics.
Their dad, Paul Cane, said his boys were outdoor kids.
The night before, the kids were "itching" to get out into the water.
"They were saying, 'dad, can we go now'," he said.
A Rockhampton Weather Bureau spokesman said the tides were receding.
The king tide was not expected to have much impact on the Capricorn Coast but it caused shallow surface flooding on Saturday to parts of Yeppoon.
On Friday the king tide in the Capricorn Coast region was at its highest, around 4.9m.
The Bureau of Meteorology expected Saturday's tides to be about 30cm higher than Friday.
Regions under threat from flooding were southeast Queensland and northeast New South Wales.
Regular high tides are around the 4.1-metre mark.
The combined gravitational pull of the moon and the sun guaranteed a higher than normal tide, followed by an extra-low tide.
