Capricorn Region

The Tropic of Capricorn is a unique address and the Capricorn Region is home to many unique places, experiences and people. There are a multitude of things that you’ll never find anywhere else. The diversity of the region promises a varied and exciting holiday experience. For example, experience a true unspoiled paradise full of relaxation, adventure and discovery at the Capricorn Coast and the Keppel group of Islands. The Capricorn Coast is also home to award winning resorts, a host of visitor attractions and many undiscovered treasures.

The Capricorn region then extends westwards, all the way to the Central Highlands where you’ll discover Lake Maraboon, the Southern Hemisphere’s second largest man made dam. Rivers and streams to fish in, Barramundi to catch in the Fitzroy River, wetlands and lagoons to explore.

National Parks ranging from the deep green of the tropical rainforest, hidden fern gullies or the fascination of massive eucalypt forests with grove of ‘bottle’ trees, or better yet, enjoy the rich greens of golf courses in the Capricorn Region.

There’s many a ‘treasure’ in the Capricorn Region. Fossick for sapphires, gold and ‘thunder-eggs’. Discover the limestone caves just twenty minutes north of Rockhampton, Aboriginal Rock Art at Carnarvon Gorge and Blackdown Tableland, watch baby crocodiles hatch from their eggs, witness the flight of the small bent wing bats, enjoy camp drafts, picnic races, or a taste of outback life on a farm stay.

The real treasures of the Capricorn Region – the people, genuine country hospitality, and a friendly laid back lifestyle where there is always time to say ‘G’day’.

Plan to spend some time in the region, you’ll find there’s always something new to discover.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
