Many historic buildings associated with the mine still abound and a daily mine tour is available. The little town is also littered with interesting old buildings including the first school to open in Queensland. This old hotel, while it has seen better days, still shows signs of its former glory.
Rockhampton is located on the Fitzroy river which runs right through the middle of the city. Many of the city's most spectacular buildings are located along the river front and in the afternoon we took a leisurely walk along the river.
This old hotel, currently being renovated is a great example of some of the beautiful buildings in Rockhampton.
Tomorrow we plan to take a drive to the nearby beach resort of Yeppoon.
