Rockhampton, known for having over 300 days of sunshine every year, is located in Queensland and is less than 400 miles from the state capital of Brisbane, Australia. With zoos, parks and festivals for visitors to enjoy, this city exemplifies the nickname "The Sunshine State."
For an educational adventure, head over to the Rockhampton Botanic Gardens and Zoo. You can learn about and feed the animals that call this zoo home. You may also want to take a guided tour through the Capricorn Caves to experience natural beauty at its finest. After walking into the cathedral area, your guide will play music to showcase the uniquely intense acoustics of the cave. For a look at the history of trains and railway stations, head over to the Archer Park Rail Museum. The opportunity to ride a real steam engine makes this attraction memorable for all ages.

Transportation from the airport includes rental cars, taxi services, shuttles and railway transportation. Rockhampton experiences a wet season from December to March and a dry season from June to September.
