Visit Rockhampton


With treetop boardwalks, a nationally significant art collection, heritage-listed streets, trophy barramundi, historical museums, ancient caves, meerkat experiences and full-bull adventures, Rockhampton is quickly becoming a hot destination for Australian nomads looking to escape the winter months.

And having recently taken out gold in the 2021 Grey Nomads Awards for Best Trail Experience in Australia, Rockhampton is now more than ever on the radar of Australian nomads as a destination that caters towards their want for authentic experiences offering comfort, flexibility and good value for money.

Spending $12.2 billion in domestic travel across the country in 2019, Australian's aged over 55 now represent one of the biggest opportunities in domestic tourism recovery.

Advance Rockhampton have today launched their 2022 winter nomads campaign, 'Curb your caravan in Rockhampton', aimed at increasing visitation amongst the nomads market as they head north from SEQ, New South Wales and Victoria across winter.
