Rockhampton sits on the Fitzroy River in Queensland, Australia. If you're planning on visiting Rockhampton, you may want to check out car hire in the city and make the 45km drive out to the see river mouth. Rockhampton is on the Tropic of Capricorn, and the sun shines for around 9% of the year. Hiring a car in the city will take you to the Capricorn Coast, and the Capricorn Caves. You can also take a boat across to Great Keppel Island, a national park island just off the Capricorn Coast. Rockhampton is 6km away from the state capital of Brisbane.
Rockhampton is becoming more of a tourist centre, particularly for those who want to stop off and break up the journey to Brisbane. By hiring a car in the city, visitors can head out to the Mount Archer National Park, which is just outside the centre of Rockhampton. The Mount gives great views of the city, and has a lot of interesting plants native to Australia. The summit is 604 metres above sea level. Rockhampton also has not one, not two, but seven shopping centres, so renting a car in the city might be sensible to help you get all those bags back to the hotel.
Rockhampton is on the Tropic of Capricorn, and the almost all year sunshine means that visitors can go sightseeing all year round. The Capricorn Coast is only half an hour outside the city, and from there you can get a ferry over to Great Keppel Island. North of the city are the Capricorn Caves. The caves are an above ground cave complex where you can either just look at the amazing rock formations and take an informational tour, or go on an adventure run that involves squeezing through 30cm gaps and crawling through tiny tunnels. Not for the fainthearted, but an unforgettable experience.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
