Included as part of the Yeppoon Foreshore and Town Centre Revitalisation Project, Yeppoon’s beach amphitheatre stage roof has recently been completed in order to revitalize existing public spaces while creating tourism, recreation and commercial land opportunities within the Yeppoon Foreshore and Town Centre precinct.
One of the primary hubs for a diverse range of major festivals and community events, the Yeppoon Foreshore is located in a picturesque setting capable of boosting existing events as well as encouraging new initiatives along the Capricorn Coast, while providing long-term benefits to the community of the Central Queensland region.
Built over the existing stage, the newly completed state-of-the-art roof structure is now able to provide year-round protection with shelter for entertainers and performers as well as shade for beach-goers, a functional design with an aesthetical prerogative.
In order to complete the functionality of this stage also at night, a dynamic colour changing LED system was required to provide both a dynamic stage lighting as well as an amazing decorative effect.
Quite unusual as an upside-down recessed application, 12 units of Ruby MR R were installed in the ceiling of Yeppoon’s beach amphitheatre to downlight this multifunctional outdoor stage. Featuring a shallow recessed depth, Ruby MC R, a highly performing LED wall washer wash light specifically designed for exterior recessed applications, allows a comfortable installation also in this atypical upside down position. To complete the stage lighting, 12 units of Ruby MC were installed on each of the twelve structural poles supporting the stage roof in a three by three disposition.
Griven RUBY MC RGBW is an elegant, medium-sized rounded spotlight, which houses six high power RGBW full colour LEDs, as well as in-built electronics and power supply unit. This stylish and versatile fixture is ideal for spot lighting and wall grazing owing to the wide selection of exchangeable optics groups available, ranging from spot aperture beams to wide distribution.
As a key Contributor towards an exceptional visitor experience that positions Yeppoon as a unique destination, this beach front stage has developed delivers a lighting design that makes the stage area this multipurpose area more functional for everyday use, restores the spectacular views and compliments the beachfront site.
