With Rockhampton’s humid subtropical climate, however, you might not always feel like walking or cycling. Sunbus operates a relatively comprehensive city bus network from Monday to Friday and on Saturday mornings. You can pick up a timetable at The Spire Visitor Information Centre (176 Gladstone Road, Tropic of Capricorn Spire, Rockhampton), or use the online Journey Planner.
Most major car rental companies operate throughout Rockhampton. You can also hail a Rockhampton Cab on the street and at taxi ranks, or by calling 131 008.
