General Information about Rockhampton

Known as the Beef Capital of Australia, few realise just how much Rockhampton and its immediate surrounds have to offer.

One of the best ways to re-live the Rockhampton of yesteryear is to discover it via the Heritage Route. The route takes in the grand old architecture, lovingly preserved or restored, which graces many areas of Rockhampton.

The city's lifeline in the easy days of its settlement was the Fitzroy River. Quay Street, which runs by the river and is easily accessible as part of the Central Business District, is part of the Heritage Route. Visitors to the city make comment on the high standard and excellent quality of the arts and crafts stocked by the local galleries. From culture to horticulture – the city's botanic gardens have been lauded for containing some of the most extensive examples of indigenous flora and fauna.
