Rockhampton Riverside Precinct

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Rockhampton’s Riverside Precinct, situated right in the heart of the city, offers the best views of the Fitzroy River (Tunuba) and is an exemplary example of modern, integrated urban design that sits alongside the city’s strip of heritage-listed buildings.

Stroll along the heritage soaked sandstone boulevard on Quay Street and across the lower bank boardwalk surrounded by lush plantings, public artworks and a picturesque boat dotted vista.

Take in the views of the Fitzroy River (Tunuba) and the mountain ranges that lay to the north of Rockhampton from the Boathouse Restaurant. While you’re there, order a bite to eat, your drink of choice and sit on the deck overlooking the river. Hot tip – this is one of Rockhampton’s most Instagrammable places!

With the family? Take your kids to the precinct’s playground and perch up with a coffee while watching (or joining) them play, then cool off amongst Rod Laver Plaza’s pop-up water jets.

The Riverside Precinct sits adjacent to the city’s main business district, so when you’re ready to keep exploring make your way to East Street where you’ll find cafes, boutique shopping, bars, pubs and restaurants amongst the tree-lined avenue.
