Kinka Beach snapshot – just south of Yeppoon, this quite little place has a few hidden gems! From the Capricorn Caves, to some stunning short hikes, this place is peaceful. Okay, let’s checkout some photos.
If you stopped by last week you m know we were in Cape Hillsborough. The drive to Kinka Beach is about 4.5 hours and being gluten free, I often plan our lunch stops ahead (if not packing a lunch). On this slightly remote drive we were pleasantly surprised by the Third Ground Coffee House. On Google they had a 4.7 score and very much lived up to that! Check out this gluten free chicken schnitzel sandwich – it’s the best fried chicken I’ve had, hands down. With beets, pickled veg, and crispy chicken, it was delicious. Bryce has the veggie burger, which was roasted squash and pumpkin – I’ll admit, his bun looked way, way better. Both were great – stop in if you’re in the area!
With the long drive we found it funny (okay, maybe not funny, perhaps unusual given the remote driving in Canada) that Australia has a lot of signs to ‘Survive this Drive’ and ‘Stay Awake’. They even have trivia games to keep travellers engaged. We got the question wrong.

Okay, time for some Kinka Beach photos – the small town has some short decent hikes up a few rock faces. This particular one has this layered fan look which is quite neat. The sun here feels so much hotter than being at home, we’re looking forward to some ‘cooler’ days ahead (24-28) as we head south.
One more special thing while you’re in the area, check out the Capricorn Caves. We did the Cathedral Tour and it was amazing. The space has the perfect atmosphere for music, and the cave has 100% darkness, making the musical experience so intense. Plus, we got to see one area of the cave light up at high noon from a very small portal – look at all that light!
Well, there you have it, a Kinka Beach snapshot. Thanks so much for checking things out – see you again soon.
