What to do in Rockhampton with a Hire Car

Being known as the Beef capital of Australia, Rockhampton has so much more to offer visitors other than cows and bulls. Here are some ideas on what to do in Rockhampton. Book a hire car and travel conveniently between the attractions.

Mt Archer National Park – In a protective environment, you can see a variety of flora and fauna worth admiring with Mt Archer as the backdrop. Mt Archer itself is a great place to catch the sun rising or setting, or just enjoy the views of Rockhampton. The animal life is also protected in the National Park boundaries and you never know what may cross your path. Smell the fresh air instead of the air conditioning in the hire car.

Rockhamptons Botanic Gardens – Enjoy an afternoon stroll, or explore the Tropical Gardens and enjoy the exquisite plants.  There is car parking available which means you can park your hire car.  There is a cafe you can utilise and also sheltered areas for you to cool down.

Rockhampton Zoo – Yes there is a Zoo in Rockhampton, and you can enjoy sharing your day with the animals and learning more about them.  Situated within the Botanical Gardens allows you to really make a day of it.  You can leave the hire car parked up for the day and really enjoy yourself.

Leichhardt Hotel – Enjoy a cold beer in the bar, or grab a bite to eat in the al fresco restaurant before heading to your room which is 1 of 96.  Being a 4 star hotel, you can enjoy views of the city and beyond.

“Rocky” is aptly named the beef capital. Expect to see statues of bulls throughout the city. Hand in hand with the statues, you will also come across some awesome examples of colonial architecture that also makes Rockhampton famous. Although they may seem completely different attractions, the locals are happy that their city’s claim to fame are from completely different avenues. You can’t help but see the life size bull statues and also enjoy the Heritage listed buildings that are evident along the heritage walk.
