Information

Rockhampton lies on the Fitzroy River, and is just north of the Tropic of Capricorn in Central Queensland. Rockhampton has a north and south side with three bridges connecting both sides, one for trains and two for vehicles and people.

Grazing is still a dominant industry here as it is throughout Central Queensland. Tourism is increasingly playing a role in the development of city and surrounds. The city is a convenient distance north from Brisbane to provide an overnight stop for tourists, who can then branch out to visit local attractions. The Capricorn Coast is a 30 minute drive from Rockhampton, with the islands of the Keppel group easily accessible from there.
