The mountain looms over Rockhampton like a protective guardian. Bushwalking and rock-climbing aside, Mount Archer is an excellent family getaway. You get tremendous views of Rockhampton, the Capricorn Coast and the sunset from the summit (which isn’t so hard to reach). There are some excellent picnic and BBQ facilities that are quite popular with the locals, so you might want to try those out. Of the wildlife to run across here, the most prominent is the cockatoo. If you’re feeling hardy, you can even walk 11 kms from Fraser Park (near the mountain) to German Street. At any rate, going to and fro along the road to the mount is wonderful enough for its peaceful views.
