1. Meerkat Experience
The cheeky meerkat mob at Rockhampton Zoo are just waiting to meet you and the family. A meerkat encounter includes a keeper talk and feeding session that's guaranteed to have meerkats climbing all over you.
2. Fishing Charter
If you've got a keen angler in the family, gift them an epic day out on the Fitzroy River (Tunuba) with one of the many local fishing charters for an unforgettable experience chasing metre plus barra and king threadfin salmon. There’s a range of charter experiences on offer when fishing the Fitzroy, including boat hire options for those flying into the region.
3. River Cruise
The 90 minute River Cruises CQ sunset cruise is a must do and includes complimentary nibbles with drinks available to purchase plus rewarding views of the historic buildings and wildlife that call the banks of the river home.
4. Farm Stay
Switch off your phone and enjoy the fresh air, open spaces and smell of the bush with a farm stay experience at a working cattle property. Feed the farm animals, ride a horse, relax in a lagoon or try your hand at quad bike riding across a property before winding down the day around the campfire.
5. Dreamtime Cultural Centre
Rockhampton's Dreamtime Cultural Centre is located 6 kilometres from the CBD, set on 12 hectares of land boasting a number of native plants, trees, waterfalls and gardens. Visitors are welcome to self guide their way around the site but to fully experience the cultural centre, we recommend booking one of the many guided tours on offer and immerse yourself in the indigenous story of our region.
