About Central QLD

The Central Queensland region is one of the pillars of the state’s economy. Known around the world for expertise in the mining and rail industries, although it’s also known as Cattle Country, with an estimated 2.6+ head of cattle in Fitzroy alone.
There are six council regions within Central Queensland, including the Banana Shire, Central Highlands, Gladstone, Livingstone, Rockhampton and Woorabinda. Interestingly enough, the Banana Shire is named after a dun-coloured bullock (young male bovine), not the curved fruit.
The Banana Shire is also known for the large bodies of sandstone running through multiple areas, including the Expedition National Parks. Although for hikers, you’ll want to head to Nathan Gorge, where you’ll also find indigenous art and some incredible views.
In the shire is also Taroom, which is known for its race track. Now, this isn’t just any race track. Horses actually race the opposite way to what they would normally do, which doesn’t sound like much, but can be enough to throw off even a champion racer.
A three-hour drive from Taroom and 7 hours from Brisbane is Rockhampton. Founded in 1853, you’ll be amazed by the heritage post offices, streets and the six bull statues throughout town. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay in Rocky, there’s accommodation a plenty. Take up residence in a serviced apart, resort, motel, hotel, holiday park, farm retreat, bed and breakfast or any of the other locations.
As for things to do in Rockhampton, aside from checking out the historical sights, the fishing off the coastline is incredible, the Rockhampton Zoo is a hoot and Capricorn Caves will leave your jaw sore from how often it hits the floor.
