Located on the Fitzroy River, Rockhampton, with a population of 60,000 people is a great place to visit. Founded in 1855, the name "Rockhampton" was inspired by the rocks in the river.
There are quite a few Heritage listed buildings in the city. The Cirterion Hotel is said to be haunted. A small room to the right of the main entrance is where it is said a female ghost has been seen.
Its other claim to fame is that during World War 2, General Douglas Macarthur and other high ranking Officers stayed here.
Travel 633ks on the Bruce Highway from Brisbane to Rockhampton. Beaches are about 40ks away at Yepoon. Rockhampton can be reached by car, Tilt Train or Air from Brisbane.
The Tropic of Capricorn passes through the city and is marked by a monument.
