With six bull statues representing the main breeds of the area, there is no doubting to the status of Rockhampton as Australia’s Beef Capital. Naturally Rockhampton offers more than beef. Located on the Tropic of Capricorn, the city is surrounded by coastal and rural landscapes. With its historical architecture and opportunities for both a relaxed, as well as active stay, Rockhampton is a great place to visit.
