Rockhampton Accommodation

Rockhampton or “Rocky” to its mates, is leaving the beef capitol, cow-town stereotype well behind! Having been the commercial and administrative hub of central Queensland since the 19th century heyday of cattle farming and gold and copper mining, the country town is littered with Victorian-era buildings with ornate facades, wide streets, and colonial sandstone structures that sit side by side with funky modern architecture giving the town is charmingly historic ambience with an avant-garde edge.

The beautiful and eclectic town style, once focusing on the prospering business of the community now has a flourishing tourism sector that has filled the historic buildings with stylish accommodation, chic boutiques, hipster cafés, cosmopolitan bars, and ambient restaurants. The destination is perfect for a holiday filled with mornings spent in cafés sipping on lattes, days wandering through boutiques, market places, and quaint alcoves filled with antique treasures and afternoons spent getting in touch with nature via a cave tour or nature walk.

In fact there are several providers who will accommodate any cave cravings from simply wandering through the Capricorn caves and marvelling at the wedding chapel set inside the cavernous space and the way the light hits the rocky surface creating a natural disco ball effect. To really kick off your adrenalin and get your hands dirty commando crawl through limestone shafts in caves formed by prehistoric coral reef over 400 million years ago.

As well as impressive cave systems and good old outback charm, Rockhampton is also a gateway to coastal villages such as Yeppoon and the Great Keppel islands prying open the entire world of the Great Barrier Reef.

For a closer water experience the Fitzroy River offers cruises, fishing, and a beautiful backdrop for an evening stroll, while just next door the 144 year old heritage listed botanical gardens are begging to be appreciated in their antiquated glory.

Rockhampton accommodation varies from three bedroom apartments that give families the space they need to hotel rooms to luxury accommodation.
