Rockhampton is a city in Queensland, Australia fondly also known as the Beef Capital of Australia. The city is located on the Tropic of Capricorn and is the gateway to the Coast and the Outback. It is some 600 kilometres north of the state capital, Brisbane.
Rockhampton experiences over 300 days of sunshine each year, which lends itself to tourism activities all year round and an abundance of outdoor activities. Popular attractions include Riverbank Parklands, a riverfront parkland attraction located on the banks of Fitzroy River; the Capricorn Coast, the coastal strip between Yeppoon and Emu Park and Great Keppel Island, a large neighbouring island off the Capricorn Coast, the vast majority of which is national park.
