Kinka Beach is an established community situation on the coast between Yeppoon and Emu Park. Kinka Beach is a popular tourist destination with 2 caravan parks and hotel style accommodation.
Kinka Beach is the traditional land of the Darumbal Aboriginal tribe, as is all of the Capricornia region. The land was originally part of a pastoral lease, but limited development took place after a coastal road linking Emu Park and Yeppoon during the 1930s. It was not until the 1960s, that substantial residential development took place.
It is situated on the banks of Kinka Creek, about 6kms North of Emu Park and 17kms South of Yeppoon. Kinka beach is 3km long, faces East-North-East and consists of a narrow and, in places, eroding high tide beach fronted by several hundred metres of variable low tide sand flats and ridges.
