New amphitheatre stage roof has all events covered

YEPPOON'S beach amphitheatre stage roof has now been completed as part of the $53 million Yeppoon Foreshore and Town Centre Revitalisation Project.

It will be officially opened as part of the annual Yeppoon Lions Tropical Pinefest celebrations this weekend.

The newly completed state-of-the-art roof structure, which has been built over the existing stage, will provide year-round protection with shelter for entertainers and performers as well as shade for beach-goers.

Mayor Bill Ludwig said events specialists and architects were engaged to create a functional streamlined design that would accommodate community events while complementing the view.

"The Yeppoon Foreshore is one of the primary hubs for a diverse range of major festivals and community events, and it was important that the facilities built would also facilitate the cost-effective running of these events,” he said.

"Providing these facilities in such a unique picturesque setting will be an added drawcard attraction for both existing events as well as encouraging new events to the Capricorn Coast.”

The official opening will be at the Yeppoon Beachfront Stage Area on Sunday at 11.30am.
