Tourism & Events

Absolutely buzzing with events 

The Rockhampton Region is much more than a transit stop for travellers, or a one night stay on the drive between South and Tropical North Queensland. Now as a noted regional metropolitan city, the Region is a destination for events, business holidays and visiting family and friends.

Contributing to nearly 2,100 full time equivalent jobs to the region, tourism is one of our key industries. Advance Rockhampton is playing a greater role in tourism planning, infrastructure provision, marketing and promotion and major events attractions and promotions. Our Tourism Unit is a vital part of the Advance Rockhampton team, working across product development, soft product development and marketing of the region.

Explore Rockhampton is the tourism destination brand behind the Rockhampton region, and is the backbone of the marketing strategy moving forward.
