What can I do in the region?

From the Mount Archer hinterland to the banks of the mighty Fitzroy River, there’s a new experience waiting for you at every turn in the Rockhampton region.

One of the greatest things about Rockhampton is that it has all the amenities of a capital city, but isn’t a concrete jungle! There are plenty of spaces to play, beautiful parks and loads of activities. Whether you love sport, art, music, animals or nature you’ll find plenty of things to keep you occupied.

Soak up our subtropical climate with endless sunshine and explore the river, parks and outdoor spaces. Get to know where the locals eat, drink and play with award winning restaurants and cafes as well as a vibrant pub and live music scene.

Explore the region’s history and heritage along the spectacular river front and its heritage listed buildings built in the 18th and 19th century.

Engage your cultural senses with our museums, galleries and emerging laneway culture.

Join a local sporting team with world class facilities, an art class or learn to water-ski on the largest river catchment in eastern Australia.

We invite you to experience living in Rockhampton, where country hospitality meets city conveniences.
