Where can we play?
Something for everyone
There's so much to enjoy about life in Rockhampton. It won't be long before you’re as enthusiastic as the locals.
Theatre shows, live musos and comedy nights, movies, dining out or gallery exhibits can take you from your work day into an evening soiree. On weekends, you can enjoy the great outdoors year-round at sporting events or relaxing with friends. Shopping at farmers’ markets, pop up expos and hand-made markets are always popular.
There’s also an abundance of events and festivals throughout the year to keep your calendar busy, and at just a short distance away from the Southern Great Barrier Reef, some of Queensland’s great beaches are right on your doorstep.
Daredevils, bookworms, fishers, racegoers, sport stars, foodies, shopaholics, history buffs, theatre goers, bushwalkers – Rockhampton Region can satisfy any hobby you’ve listed in your resume.
