Rockhampton’s a city that’s all about livability

Make the move to Rockhampton – you’ll discover surprisingly affordable country living with all the big city advantages, river and mountain views, a cruisy thirty-minute ride to the coast, and an easy commute to work - all in one place.

When you relocate to Rocky, as the locals call it, you’ll find yourself with time for the people and activities you love most. From the furthest northern suburbs to the airport, with the city in-between, nothing is more than 20 minutes away. 

Family education is always one of the first things you want settled when relocating. You’ll be spoiled for choice in Rockhampton for your own or your family’s changing educational aspirations with plentiful and varied learning institutions, including our own University.
