Travel Tips for Rockhampton

Tropic of Capricorn

by balhannah

The Actual Tropic of Capricorn passes through Rockhampton.

The Tropic of Capricorn is the extreme southern position of the sun in apparent annual journey.
As the earth tilts on its axis, the sun appears to move in an orbit inclined 23 and a half degrees to the plane of the Earth's Equator. It reaches its southern position, the Summer Solstice on about 21 December each year and its opposite, the Winter Solstice on about 21 June each year.
These two dates begin the official periods of Summer in the Northern and Southern hemispheres.

There is a spire here to mark the place. Next to it, is The Capricorn Tourist Information Centre The Information Centre is also a registered travel agent and does sell Souvenirs, Drinks and ice-creams.

Mt Archer National Park - great views

by cafank

Mt Archer National Park provides magnificent views of the city, and there is a great array of native Australian flora and fauna, most natable the glossy black cockatoo.

Frazer Park is at the summit of Mt Archer, which is about 604 meters above sea level, and there are good picnic and viewing areas. You do need private transport to get to the summit

There is a mountain-top cafe but it wasn't open when I was there late afternoon, early evening.

There are also several bush-walks anf lookouts aound the summit.

There are good views of the city and also the other side of the range as you drive up the mountain but do be careful as some of them are on the opposite side of the road to the view.
