Saturday 26 January 2018 is Australia Day. All services will be operating on a normal timetable on this day. The public holiday for Australia is observed on Monday 28 January 2019. Young’s will only be operating its route 20 service on a Sunday timetable.
For each of us, Australia Day is celebrated in our own way. It could be a game of beach cricket, a BBQ with family and friends, or listening to the Triple J Hottest 100.
At Young’s Bus Service, Australia Day is about transporting you, your family and your friends safely to your destination such as the Great Australian Beach Party in Yeppoon along the foreshore. The official program starts at 7am with a fun run. There will be market stalls, beach games, a full stage program and fireworks sponsored by local business JRT Group.
If you’re traveling from Rockhampton to Yeppoon, or Emu Park to Yeppoon, you need to catch the Route 20 service.
Some of the bus stops on the way are
- Rockhampton City – Bolsover St (outside Rockhampton Police Station)
- Stocklands Rockhampton – High St ( outside Jetts Gym underneath Kmart within the Stocklands grounds)
- Farm Street Glenmore – (opposite MacDonalds)
The common places to hop off this service are

Then there are the random in between stops located at

So catch the bus and save the fuss. Be dropped off right in the heart of Yeppoon, and as you cruise along the highway in communal comfort and style, take in the scenery as you go by.
