Taking its name from the Tropic of Capricorn, this region is home to many remarkable historic towns and natural wonders like Rockhampton and the Great Barrier Reef. Not to mention its scenic coastline from Yeppoon to Emu Park where you will find no less than 13 warm sandy isolated beaches.
Rockhampton lies on the banks of the broad Fitzroy River. A historic city, built on the wealth of gold rushes and cattle empires, its heritage precincts protect Rockhampton’s grandest architecture while its collection of grand old pubs keeps the character of the city alive. Enjoy the history of Rockhampton as you walk down Quay Street, the longest National Trust Heritage Street in Australia.
One of the natural wonders of the world is just a short ferry ride from the Capricorn region mainland, once there you will be walking on sun-bleached beaches and snorkelling in crystal clear waters.
You will never forget your visit to this unique region of Capricorn where your greatest problem will be in leaving.
