Take a legendary trip through Australia from Rockhampton towards the central Queensland outback. Experience the essence of outback Australia and come back with treasured memories.
Initiate your drive at Rockhampton where all the tourist attractions are sited close by. You must stopover at The Rockhampton City Art Gallery to see the major works of Australian artists. Wind your way through the beautiful Cathedral Cave en route for the colossal Cathedral Cavern.
At the famed Mount Etna Caves National Park rangers organise dusk tours from the month of December till February. This presents an ideal occasion to view the countless tiny bent-wing bats as they fly out from a cave in search of food. Look forward to a final fix at Yeppoon which is close to Rockhampton.
The short yet picturesque detour into Blackdown Tableland National Park is well worth it due to the sandstone escarpments which ascend from the plain along with an amazing array of splendid waterfalls. Remember that the drive towards the plateau is not suitable for caravans due to the steep and meandering way. Visit the renowned gem fields of Emerald, Sapphire and Rubyvale sited close by where gems are frequently found.
Take a trip through the Drummond Range and head westwards to Jericho. This spot is well-known for a monthly film screening at possibly the smallest drive-in worldwide. Look forward to a bit of classic cinema in Barcaldine. It takes an hour to get to Longreach from Barcaldine. Longreach is the abode of the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame & Outback Heritage Centre which is in essence a tribute to explorers, stockmen and other pioneers of the outback.
Continue your journey into the outback en route for Winton where you can set up base and travel around the nearby tourist attractions. As you journey south from Winton, history takes on epic proportions at the famed Lark Quarry Conservation Park which is the site of the lone recorded dinosaur stampede worldwide.
This is the beginning of an unforgettable journey to explore Queensland’s concealed gems.
