As Rockhampton was founded in 1853, many of its buildings, such as Customs House and the old post office, are heritage-listed and well worth a visit. Some of these beautiful places have been turned into museums, art galleries, and restaurants.
The city is the perfect place to experience nature, with so many events and attractions that focus on life on the land, in the sea, and even in the sky. Whether you’re exploring the national park or Great Barrier Reef, visiting animals in a zoo or farm, or following the passage of the sun through the Tropic of Capricorn, Rockhampton is a great place to get in touch with the natural world.
