Rockhampton

(4.1/5 based on 1,200+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: zoos & aquariums, wildlife areas, museums
With over 300 sunny days every year, Rockhampton plays host to numerous outdoor activities. Most place along the riverbanks or in one of the many parks. A big draw is the nearby national park with hiking trails and campgrounds. The town was settled as grazing land for cattle, and the eternal sunshine with moderate rainfall keep the pastures green. However, tourism began to gain ground after the city developed a thriving cultural identity and opened a 1,200-seat theater that hosts international talent. Local talent, including boomerang dancers and fire eaters, also takes the stage. Use our Australia vacation route planner to arrange your visit to Rockhampton and any other destinations in Australia that take your fancy.
