Kershaw Gardens

Parks and Gardens

Rockhampton’s Kershaw Gardens were officially opened in September 1988 as part of a project celebrating the Australian Bicentenary. Initial development of the gardens commenced in 1976, on an old landfill reclamation area.

Today, the Gardens represent a natural Australian bush environment, in contrast to the more formal style of traditional Botanic Gardens. These magnificent gardens stretch for one kilometre along the Bruce Highway and provide an attractive, peaceful setting within the heart of Rockhampton.
