Additional Notes Rockhampton is situated on Queensland’s largest river, the Fitzroy, 633 kilometres north of Brisbane and just above the Tropic of Capricorn. Founded in 1858, a mini gold rush at Canoona - 48kms to the north - accelerated the establishment of the city. The city has retained a large number of heritage buildings, particularly within the Quay Street heritage precinct. While Rockhampton is largely known for its beef cattle industry, other primary industries in the region include agriculture and mining.
