I called Rockhampton home for the majority of my teenage years / early twenties and moved away a couple of decades ago. Since then I have returned yearly to visit family and friends. Often I am asked ‘why do you keep going back?’ and the answer is always the same, ‘its a great region to explore’.
With each yearly visit my children and I would explore what the region has on offer. Over the years we have crawled through the Capricorn Caves, held baby crocodiles at Karana Crocodile Farm, been on picnics to the top of Mount Archer and swum in freshwater rivers and the sea.
The botanical gardens is a firm favourite for an ice-cream on a hot day. Rochampton has a great selection of restaurants to try but the kids love the Chinese place with the walls covered red paper.
This visit we visited Yeppoon’s new lagoon and refurbished sea front. It’s so pretty! I will always miss the old Yeppoon with its rustic cafes, however we do love what they have done to the place 💕

Yarn bombing, was so unexpected and cute.
Gracemere has the best little garden shop, I have ever seen.
