Principal's Welcome

Yeppoon is a township of approximately 15,000 people located on the coast of Central Queensland, 700km north of Queensland’s capital city, Brisbane.

Yeppoon State High School has approximately 1,000 students from Year 7-12. We have a sister school relationship with a school in Japan and we have hosted many exchange and international students over the years. Our school’s International program will only accept ten students at a time so you can be assured of personal, quality care and homestay.

Students and staff at our school live by four key values: Responsibility, Active Participation, Manners and Safety. Our international students have the option of studying an extensive range of academic subjects and being involved in our many sporting and cultural programs.

I thank you for choosing Yeppoon State High School as your Study Abroad destination.

Homestay* enables EQI students to truly experience Australia's famous lifestyle.

By living with an Australian host family international students become part of the local community and have a fantastic opportunity to practise their English in a safe and caring home environment. International students often develop lasting friendships with their homestay families.

  • Students have their own bedroom with study facilities, three meals a day, and access to transport to and from school, and to school activities
  • Host families are carefully selected from within the school community and undergo a police check as required by Queensland law

Standard Homestay fees have been set and these are listed on the EQI program fees page.
