Primarily known for its agriculture, Rockhampton is home to over 2.5 million cattle within a 250km (155mi) radius, as well as the ‘Big Bull’ statues that are scattered across town, and the legendary Great Western Hotel, where you can eat a juicy steak and watch professional bull riders ply their trade in an actual rodeo ring on Friday nights.
But Rockhampton is also where you’ll find natural wonders like the Mount Archer National Park, with an impressive range of native plants and wildflowers and stunning views of the coast, and the Capricorn Caves, a spectacular series of limestone caves that demand to be explored.
Within the heritage-listed Rockhampton Botanic Gardens, you’ll find the Rockhampton Zoo, filled with native animals, exotic creatures and ambitious conservation projects. The Dreamtime Cultural Centre – located amongst 30 acres of natural bushland – will open your eyes to Australia’s Indigenous history, and for those looking to take a dip into the Southern Great Barrier Reef, Rockhampton also serves as the gateway to the coastal gems of Yeppoon and Great Keppel Island.
