Capricorn Caves is a multi-generational family owned attraction located 23km north of Rockhampton and just minutes off the Pacific Coast Way. Accessible walkways and ramps allow you to experience the breathtaking acoustics in the Cathedral Cave on the hourly tour.
These amazing tropical limestone caves offer a beauty different to that of deep underground caves. Daily tours are conducted by experienced guides through large, well-lit caverns with beautiful decorations, rare ferns and massive tree roots and occasionally small insectivorous bats. The huge domed Cathedral Cave is renowned for its acoustics and is a popular wedding venue. A fun option at the end of the tour is a walk through the pioneer passage on to a swinging bridge in the dry rainforest. This tour is suitable for all ages as it is easy walking with wheelchair access.
Located on the shores of the Fitzroy River and just a stone’s throw from Rockhampton’s commercial heart, the riverbank is a vital part of Rockhampton’s lifestyle, and the site of regular events and festivals. With playground areas, river lookouts, shaded walkways and gathering spots, the precinct is completely accessible to all ages and abilities. The recent addition of an all abilities ramp and current construction of wheelchair accessible amenities near the playground make the Rockhampton Riverbank the perfect place to explore.
