Taranganba is also rich in history, one of the first areas on the Capricorn to be settled as Ross’s Taranganba Station in the late 1860’s, by Robert Ross. The Ross family settled much of the coastal area in the early days. Robert Ross was also at the center of the infamous Taranganba affair which began in 1886 and finally ended in 1889. “with the realization that there had been massive misrepresentation to the public regarding the value and amount of gold found” as stated in A history of the shire of Livingstone compiled and edited by Leo M Carpenter. The book goes on to explain the massive amounts of money that was poured in to this project, as investors were told the Taranganba mine was going to be bigger than the Mount Morgan mine.
Taranganba and Cooee Bay are south of Yeppoon and are separated from Yeppoon by Ross Creek, and accessed via Beak Bridge over Ross Creek which was opened in 1972.
