Rockhampton

Rockhampton
The Essential
As you get further from the shore of Capricorn Coast drier landscapes, flat prairies and ranches like something from the American West appear. Located 40km inland, Rockhampton is the Australian capital of beef farming, with more than four million heads of cattle. Statues celebrating all things bovine decorate the streets around town, where you rub shoulders with strapping blokes in bleached jeans, boots, broad belts, checked shirts and cowboy hats.
