Sporting Events


With world class hockey fields, a heated 10-lane 50m pool, outdoor velodrome, a 2000m flat water rowing course, premier mountain bike trails, and A-grade netball courts and football fields, Rockhampton is home to national, international and Olympic standard sporting facilities that nurture beginners to athletes.

With access to such quality facilities and a sub-tropical climate with over 300 days of sunshine, it’s no wonder Rockhampton has played host to major sporting events like the 2019 Oceania Cup, 2021 KTM AJMX Championships, 2021 NRL Semi-Final and is considered home to Rowing Queensland’s and Rowing Australia’s annual training camps.

With direct flights arriving into Rockhampton from Brisbane, Mackay, Proserpine, Townsville, Cairns, Sunshine Coast and Melbourne, as well as access via the tilt train and road access from the North, South and West - connecting to Rockhampton from all major cities in Australia has never been easier.
