Dining Out

Make no mi(steak) …

Although we are known as the Beef Capital, there’s more to Rockhampton than just restaurants with beef (but we do pride ourselves on serving up some of Australia’s finest steaks).

There are plenty of opportunities to become a regular at one of the city’s cafes and restaurants, with a full range dining experiences to choose from. If you are looking for somewhere to dine with great riverfront views, iconic heritage scenes or an electric atmosphere then you’re in luck.

You’ll find a mix of fine dining restaurants, cafes, pubs and takeaways right in the middle of Rockhampton’s CBD. Take on a trivia challenge, sip on cocktails, watch the footy, listen to sweet live tunes or get serious with the dancefloor; whatever your style, you’ll find it close to the banks of the Fitzroy River.

Otherwise break out and find your new local – with Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, Malaysian, Mexican and Chinese restaurants and more takeaway treasures hidden in pockets of suburbia.

And brunch aficionados - we haven’t forgotten you! You have a smorgasbord of outstanding cafes to choose from on a leisurely morning, rivalling the best that a capital city can offer. Smashed avo, poached eggs and coffee haunts abound all over the Region.

Between the Rockhampton CBD, the Terrace at Stockland Rockhampton, shopping centre watering-holes, the strip of takeaway restaurants along the main roads, suburban cafes and regular local markets you are sure to find something to delight the most discerning tastebuds.
