Problem Statement

How might we create economic and investment opportunities in Yeppoon?

Customer / Problem

The Yeppoon Community is geologically isolated, meaning the community doesn't often have the time or resources to shop in neighbouring towns - such as Rockhampton.


Our solution is a mobile app that would connect shoppers making a trip to Rockhampton (or returning from Rockhampton to Yeppoon) with customers who need products to be picked up but don't otherwise have the appropriate resources or time. Our app will serve as a valuable community resource and create meaningful links between Rockhampton and Yeppoon, promoting interconnectedness on both a small and wider scale.
