Queensland Holidays - The Official Tourism Site for Queensland


Arts and Culture

The story of a region is often in its railways and Capricorn boasts two fine rail museums: The Mount Morgan Railway Museum and Rockhampton's Archer Park Rail Museum.

The hub of Central Queensland's art scene is Rockhampton Art Gallery, home to a high quality Australian art collection as well as frequent exhibitions. Nearby is the Rockhampton Heritage Village, including local markets held twice a month on Sundays. The Village showcases the rich, colourful history of the Rockhampton district from the mid-19th Century to the 1950's.

And west of Rockhampton on the Central Queensland sapphire fields you'll find 'Miners Heritage' - Australia's largest underground walk-in sapphire mine. The 30 minute historical mine tour is fascinating and a little eerie, too, and is suitable for all ages.
