If the idea of a wedding in a million year old cave cathedral with natural acoustics all bedecked in fairy lights doesn’t arouse the romantic in you, then tell someone who might be interested. The cave is privately managed, and for once that’s a good thing. Various kinds of tours are offered, such as the Cathedral Tour or the Adventure ...

This isn’t a long visit, but it sure is an intimate one. The zoo is enclosed within the shady and cool botanical garden, which are a great boon during the searing Australian summers. Come early and and check out the gardens first at sunrise. They open at six, so you’ll have two hours before you need to enter the zoo to visit the Japanes...

Bruce Highway, Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia
Pretty! That’s enough to describe the Kershaw Gardens, and it’s a bit ironic considering that it’s built on an old landfill. Open 24 hours a day, the neat gardens, the clever water arrangements and the quiet contemplative areas offer the people of a Rockhampton a quiet and getaway. You’ll often find families picnicking here....

You’re in the Down Under… of course you can’t come away without seeing a crocodile or two. Driving the terror of this Australian animal deep into the hearts of National Geographic viewers everywhere was Steve Irvin’s legacy to the world. 35 km east of Rockhampton, see the beneficiary of that legacy in the flesh. The days ar...

Mt Archer QLD 4701, Australia
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 ...

10:00 am - 04:00 pm
Any indoor event of import, if it happens at Rockhampton, happens here. The gallery is an event venue, exhibition hall and promoter of arts rolled into one. It would be a mistake to dismiss it as a small town distraction. The very obscurity that detracts from it gives it the freedom of choosing its collection in a manner that would be eclectic anyw...

Visiting the spire is more about bragging rights than anything else, really. The spire marks 23 degrees and 27 minutes south of the equator; in other words, the border between the tropical and temperate half of the southern hemisphere. Sure, it’s not the South Pole but it something. The spire itself lquite literaaly represents its namesake. I...

The romance of trains permeates to all corners of the worlds. There’s something incomparable in the mystic power of the ability of train to take one far, far away. This museum understands that sense of awe and wonder and tries its best to live up to it. Check out the old but restored steam driven tram and the Rockhampton Railway Car. The coll...
