Straddling the Tropic of Capricorn and sitting halfway along the Queensland coast between Brisbane and Tropical North Queensland, the Capricorn region packs in a wide and wonderful selection of holiday experiences.
From the stark beauty of the Sapphire Gemfields in the west, heading east across the Central Highlands and down to the crystal clear island waters of the Southern Great Barrier Reef, Capricorn is a microcosm of Australian land and sea in all its experiences.
On or near the coast you'll fine pristine National Parks, unspoilt islands and cathedral-like caves. The World Heritage-listed Southern Great Barrier Reef and surrounding islands make a fantastic destination for divers, snorkellers, sailors and fun lovers looking to get away from the demands and stress of the everyday.
Highlights further inland include historic gold mining towns, sapphire gemfields, lakes, gorges and more beautiful National Parks. And at the centre of it all is the city of Rockhampton, otherwise known as the Beef Capital of Australia.
