about Rockhampton

Rockhampton is a city on the Bruce Highway, just inland of the coast in central Queensland, Australia.

Rockhampton geography

Rockhampton lies on the Tropic of Capricorn in Central Queensland. The city is located on the banks of the Fitzroy River, approximately 40 kilometres from the river mouth. The Berserker Range lies on the eastern side of the city, with the Athelstane Range to the west. The coastal area to the east of the city is known as the Capricorn Coast, with the rapidly growing town of Yeppoon as its administrative centre.

Rockhampton history

The Rockhampton district is the traditional home of the Darumbal people.

The European history of the area began in 1855, with the future site of the city being visited by the Archer Brothers, who were provided a convenient waterway for shipping of supplies for those who followed them, and a settlement grew on the riverbanks just downstream of a bar of rocks which prevented further upstream navigation from the coast. These rocks were incorporated with the traditional English term for a village, and the name Rockhampton was born.

Like many other Australian cities, Rockhampton's fortunes were assured with the discovery of gold, in this case at Canoona to the north. Later, the significant gold deposit at Mount Morgan to the south was discovered, and Rockhampton became a service town for the local area. The early tents and shantys were slowly replaced by more substantial buildings. The historic streetscape of Quay Street still displays a number of substantial historic buildings, built when Rockhampton was envisaged as being capital of a state of North Queensland. Most prominent of these is the sandstone Customs House, which today houses an information centre.

The City of Rockhampton was proclaimed in 1902.
