About 600km north of Brisbane on the Fitzroy River lies the historic town of Rockhampton, Queensland. It was established in 1853 by farmers looking for pasture and quickly became the beef capital of Australia, as the elegant buildings and tree lined avenues of Quay Street and East Street ably demonstrate.
Rent a car from Rockhampton Airport Commercials and you're ideally placed to explore the stunning white sandy beaches, lush rainforests, teeming wildlife sanctuaries and historical towns stretching for over 150km down the Capricorn Coast. Turn inland and attractions include the Mount Archer National Park and Flat Top Range Recreation Reserve.
If you feel the need for some retail therapy, Stockland Rockhampton offers the biggest shopping centre between the Sunshine Coast and Cairns. Alternatively, there's the award-winning Dreamtime Aboriginal Centre celebrating the local Darumbal culture, or the outback ranch at Cooper Downs Cattle Station, if want to discover the region's heritage.
There are lots of interesting activities within easy reach when you hire a car from Rockhampton Airport Commercials. You can pet baby crocodiles and see adults in their natural habitat at Koorana Crocodile Farm just 30 minutes out of town, or prospect for gemstones at Mount Hay Gemstone Tourist Park.

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.
