Being on the road for weeks at a time can be expensive if you're foodies like us! If Rockhampton is on your drive itinerary, stock up on local produce while you're in town and cook up your favourite BBQ feast at these top spots around the region. 


Fraser Park is located atop Mount Archer National Park and is home to the Mount Archer Amphitheatre and 500m elevated treetop boardwalk, Nurim Circuit. Located on the eastern side of the car park are a number of undercover BBQs and picnic tables under the shady gum trees. This BBQ spot by far offers up the best views around town and is a popular spot for locals and visitors alike catching our epic sunsets. Beautifully lit up at night, this BBQ spot is great for dining under the stars.

You don't have to be a master chef like local Chef Roel to cook up a delicious fish feed on the public BBQs found overlooking the Fitzroy River in Victoria Park. These fantastic undercover BBQs are elevated over the river, doubling as a great land based fishing platform meaning you can hook your catch and cook it up right then and there. Once you've finished your BBQ, stretch the legs with a shady stroll down Sir Raymond Huish Drive stopping into the adventure playground and skate park if you're travelling with the kids or enclosed dog park if travelling with the furbabies

The Mount Morgan No.7 Dam recreational area is a picturesque parkland approximately 2km from the town centre.
