The Rockhampton Region is full of opportunity, potential and memories to be made. With one simple decision you too can see why the Rockhampton Region is the perfect place to grow your family, build your career and lead a full life.

A tale of two cities, Rockhampton is both a city steeped in history and proud of its colonial heritage and regional service-centre roots while simultaneously being a city that is vibrant, cosmopolitan and actively engaged in carving out its own future.

It is a city readily defined by its natural environment, the Fitzroy River that runs through it and the Berserker Mountain Range that surrounds it; it is a city that straddles the Tropic of Capricorn and strives to be much more than the sole sum of its parts. It is a city that is plucky, ambitious and eager to solidify its reputation as a place where achieving work/life balance is not just an ambition but a reality.

All bases covered

Rockhampton is one of those places that ticks all the top priority lifestyle boxes: affordable housing; quality education opportunities; high level health care and support services plus top-shelf arts and cultural amenities beautifully wrapped up in a central location. Team these points of primary focus with lifestyle tags like family friendly; sports and recreation hotspot; event epicentre; shopping mecca; dining destination and then throw in a laid back lifestyle, a sun-soaked subtropical climate within a half-an-hour cooee of the Southern Great Barrier Reef and you have a seriously convincing all-round product. Oh, and considering this is all outrageously accessible and crazily convenient the Rockhampton region really is the ideal location for your new home.
