Located in the state of Queensland along the Capricorn Coast, Rockhampton is Australia's beef capital and houses more than 2 million cows in the area around the city. But do not let the cattle fool you: Rockhampton will still entertain you and treat you to a nice small town vacation.
With a Rockhampton airport car hire, you can drive straight to the Rockhampton Visitor Information Centre for a map of the area, some helpful tips on how to enjoy your stay, and an up close glimpse of the former Customs House and its quaint architecture.
From there, travel over to the Rockhampton City Art Gallery for an exhibit of Australian paintings as well as visitor displays. Then you can grab some steak or barramundi to eat at the Bush Inn Bar & Grill set inside the historic Criterion Hotel.
When night comes, you can relax and party down to the live music at the Criterion and enjoy the great pub food. The Great Western Hotel can also provide you with a DJ and a live band performance on Friday nights.
