Queensland Holidays - The Official Tourism Site for Queensland

Capricorn

Nature and Wildlife

Take a tour of the Capricorn Caves north of Rockhampton and witness spectacular natural creations deep in a limestone ridge. These caves are also home to colonies of small insectivorous bats in certain seasons.

Capricorn's National Parks provide walking trails for all levels of fitness. The jewel in the region's crown is Carnarvon Gorge in the central highlands with its towering white cliffs and lush side gorges.

Cooberrie Park Wildlife Sanctuary is home to more than 300 native animals and you can cuddle a koala, hold a snake and hand-feed their very friendly kangaroos and wallabies. Emerald Botanic Gardens is an impressive showcase of Queensland's tropical flora, great for both serious plant lovers and for an early morning or late afternoon stroll.

A wildlife destination with a difference is Koorana Crocodile Farm half an hour drive from Rockhampton or Yeppoon, a family-run crocodile farm and restaurant. If you don't mind getting your hands dusty then try fossicking at Mount Hay Gemstone Tourist Park west of Rockhampton, an internationally known destination for thunder egg fossicking.
