Rockhampton is full of elegant buildings stemming from its rich merchant, maritime and gold-rush heritage. If you only have a short time and would like to capture a snapshot of Rockhampton’s history, visit one of Queensland’s premier heritage streetscapes – Quay Street. Starting at the wharves that were the gateway into Rockhampton, and continuing through most of the early Central Business District, this tour is approximately two kilometres one way up Quay, or you can extend your history lesson, complete with shopping and a cuppa, with a return trip down Bolsover and East Streets.
