Rockhampton in eastern Queensland is over 600km north of Brisbane and became a city in 1902. It has a sister city in Japan called Ibusuki.

Known to locals as "Rocky", the city is the beef capital of Australia and a lot of land in the region is used for cattle grazing.

Tourism is starting to play a large part in Rockhampton's economy as the city is a convenient stop on the drive up Queensland's coast.
