Rockhampton Heritage Building Trail

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Rockhampton is full of elegant buildings stemming from its rich merchant, maritime and gold-rush heritage.

Quay Street is your destination if you only have a short time and would like to take in as much of Rockhampton’s history as possible. 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, or you can add on the river walk for a lovely return trip.

This is one of Australia’s most historically significant heritage strips and is Queensland’s longest National Trust heritage-listed street.
