There is no doubting to the status of Rockhampton as Australia’s Beef Capital. However, Rockhampton offers more than beef. Located on the Tropic of Capricorn, the city is surrounded by coastal and rural landscapes and offers opportunities for both a relaxed, as well as active stay. On over 300 days of sunshine, you can enjoy the beaches on the Capricorn Coast or explore the region’s national parks and caves. With its historical buildings and tree-lined streets facing the Fitzroy River, Rockhampton is a great place to visit.
