Introducing Capricorn Hinterland

According to the official road-numbering system, the Capricorn Hwy running inland from Rockhampton is Australia’s very own Route 66, so get your kicks by heading for the Blackdown Tableland National Park or the even more spectacular Carnarvon National Park. Alternatively, some 270km west of the coast at Emerald, you’ll find yourself on the doorstep of central Queensland’s gem fields. It is best to visit in the cooler months between April and November.
