Free Camping in Rockhampton

Who knew you could Free Camp right in the heart of Rockhampton at Kershaw Park.

We had neglected to take a photo at the campsite!

I think it is awesome that a city such as Rocky would allow free camping right in the middle of the city. In fact it is just across the road from Stockland Shopping Centre.

We also had the advantage of meeting up with long time friends Sue & Peter, whom we haven’t seen for ages. They used to live us back home, until they moved to Coffs. It is so great to have this time to catch up.

After a quick settle in, we had a cuppa with Peter and Sue and I took a wander over to the shopping centre looking for a restaurant for the 4 of us to go to later that night as they had to be moving on early the next morning. As it was we decided to hop in the car and drive to a Thai restaurant in a neighbouring suburb.

Emu Park

It has become a tradition that we have bacon and eggs on the first morning at a new location if we are going to stay there a few days. So after our scrumptious breakfast we took the car to the Tourist Information Centre to seek advice of what to see in the area. We decided to take a scenic trip out to the seashore via Emu Park where we had a delightful picnic lunch on the headland at Wreck Point and then onto Yeppoon which is another pretty inlet.
