Rockhampton City Escape

Rockhampton owes much of its past and present fortunes to the beef industry and the “big bulls” statues that are scattered around town are a tribute to the city’s Beef Capital of Australia title. You can experience livestock sales for yourself at Gracemere Saleyards, on the outskirts of Rockhampton, which handle the largest throughput of export beef cattle in Queensland, and is the largest stud-selling venue in the Southern Hemisphere.


What can I do in Rockhampton City?

So many options! Here is a list of our must dos…

-  Tickle your taste buds with a world renowned, juicy steak and catch a rodeo at The Great Western Hotel
