THE BEEF CAPITAL - Rockhampton
Known as the Beef Capital of Australia. It's hard to go past the fact that beef is a big part of Rockhampton's economy and existence.... with reminders to be found on the Bruce Highway at the city's exit / entrance and within the city where there are statues of Santa Gertrudis, Brahman, Braford and Droughtmaster bulls.
30mins from our farm .... we are hoping to change the focus on the Beef Capital to include Alpacas with now approx 400 in the area and building!
Rockhampton has lots of attractions, great accommodation, restaurants and shopping with half a dozen major shopping centres in the area and is located on the beautiful Fitzroy River.
