I quite like Rockhampton, at least the parts of it I’ve seen. Its an old port city with wide streets (so wagons can turn around in them), a real sense of place that cities like Brisbane are still struggling with, and some truly glorious old buildings. Like their cultural center, the Walter Reid, for example:


Every time I find myself in Rockhampton I find myself wishing it hosted a big steampunk festival of some kind, SD its really the kind of city that makes me want to put on a top hat and ride a Zeppelin.
