Replenish the soul, reconnect with nature and enjoy the outdoor life the region has to offer! The varied landscape accommodates a plethora of outdoor activities to enjoy. Our constant sunshine allows you to soak up the rays (safely of course) or enjoy the shade – just make sure you have your hat, sunscreen and water!
Our parks, hiking and walking tracks get you out and about exploring our region and taking in some beautiful scenery although cooling off is never far from your mind in our subtropical climate so a number of pools and aquatic centres around the region provide some cool relief!
Skate parks for skateboarders, scooter riders and BMX riders are a popular spot across the region. You can find your local park at:
- Alf Kele Park, Huish Drive, Wandal
- Police Citizens Youth Club, Lakes Creek Road, North Rockhampton
- Cedric Archer Park, Fisher Street, Gracemere
- Boyd Park, Thompson Avenue, Mount Morgan
