According to the book 'A History of the Livingstone shire' compiled and edited by Leo M Carpenter, “Holiday trips from Rockhampton to the coast had begun in 1870 when excursionists travelled on the Mary to Emu Park and Keppel Island. Only small numbers of people were able to afford the coach trip and to pay for holiday accommodation.
Christmas 1883, 80 people holidayed at Emu Park, only 40 when to Yeppoon. With the building of the railway line in 1888, Emu Park was confirmed as the leading Central Queensland resort.
128 passengers travelled on the first Rockhampton to Yeppoon train in November 1909, twice that number travelled to Emu Park on the same day.”
