#PROJECTS: Rockhampton

A thread we can put stuff in about Rockhampton.

Rockhampton is Queensland’s 7th largest city with a population of around 80,000 people. It isn’t known for its growth but rather its beef and beef products.

Anyway feel free to add your own pictures and comments about Rockhampton.

Some pictures of Rocky.

I haven't been to Rockhampton for close to 15yrs now, so I can't remember it much, but I'm always so surprised at the amount of old buildings that still exist, it looks fantastic. Its bizarre though, that this is one of the few cities in Qld that is actually losing people.

Cul, I think the building with the dome is the Customs House, it is a similar design to the one in Brisbane CBD.

The court house is a building set back behind it somewhere.

at least 5 stories, I spent a week there on rail business on 5th floor.

That building is where the operations for most of the coal haulage is managed. This is a lucrative business which accounts for the majority of QR's profit.

Stanwell Power Station is huge, I used to live in Gracemere a long time ago and you could see the towers from miles away.

Rockhampton Plaza Hotel


Mercure Inn Leichhardt


Country Comfort Rockhampton

I stayed at the Country Comfort once, quite good, nice views of the Fitzroy river, infact its right across from the River. The Mall there is one of the nicest malls in Australia, Infact, its what Townsville should look at.
