Rockhampton is a city located in the state of Queensland, about 40 km from the Pacific Ocean in the so-called “Capricorn Region” a stretch of coastline in Central Queensland, so-called because it is close to the Tropic of Capricorn. It is known for being the Australian capital of meat, which is why it is called “The Beef City” as it supplies much of the domestic market and some international destinations. Of course, in the past, before the rise of meat and other agricultural products, this city was known for its long mining tradition, mainly for its gold deposits, material that is now virtually extinct.

In fact, this fame as an old mining town has become one of its main tourist attractions, as tourists visit the abandoned mines of Rockhampton in the hope of finding gold nuggets.

Thanks to the abundance lived in the past Rockhampton is full of beautiful and elegant buildings, restored and preserved, which are worth visiting, mainly on the coast of the Fitzroy River, in Quay Street.

Another of the attractions of the city is to take a boat ride on this same river, practice water skiing or just sit and admire its beauty. The concentration of old buildings, tree-lined streets, and the Fitzroy River combine to make Rockhampton unique in Australia.

In Rockhampton we also recommend visiting the Rocky Markets, Mount Archer Viewpoint, which offers beautiful views of the city and presents a varied offer of Australian flora and fauna, the Rockhampton Botanic Gardens, the Zoo, the Capricorn Caves, Kershaw Gardens, Mount Archer, Mount Etna Caves National Park, The Spire Tropic of Capricorn Visitor Information Centre, and the Art Gallery.

But if you prefer to enjoy spectacular white sandy beaches accompanied by a turquoise blue sea, we recommend that you drive your rental car to the Pacific Ocean coasts closest to the city, which are 30 minutes away.

Rockhampton offers a wide cultural variety in the fields of music, theatre and other art classes, in fact, this city is the birthplace of many plastic artists, actors, and musicians.
