Make no mi(steak)…

Although we are known as the Beef Capital, there’s more to Rockhampton than just restaurants with beef.  

There are plenty of opportunities to become a regular at one of the city’s cafes and restaurants, with a full range of dining experiences to choose from. If you are looking for somewhere to dine with great riverfront views, iconic heritage scenes or an electric atmosphere then you’re in luck.

You’ll find a mix of fine dining restaurants, cafes, pubs and takeaways right in the middle of Rockhampton’s CBD. Take on a trivia challenge, sip on cocktails, watch the footy, listen to live music or get serious with the dance floor; whatever your style, you’ll find it close to the banks of the Fitzroy River (Tunuba).

And brunch aficionados - we haven’t forgotten you! You have a smorgasbord of outstanding cafes to choose from on a leisurely morning, rivalling the best that a capital city can offer. Smashed avo, poached eggs and coffee haunts abound all over the Region.

Between the Rockhampton CBD, the Terrace at Stockland Rockhampton, the strip of takeaway restaurants along the main roads, suburban cafes and regular local markets, you are sure to find something to delight the most discerning tastebuds.

A full list of restaurants, cafes, steakhouses, pubs and clubs can be found on TripAdvisor, but below are some of our favourites.
