Mayor Strelow is also excited to announce there will be a handful of new activities for Rocky locals to check out.

“We’ll also see some really exciting new additions to the program, including a chance to travel back in time and discover the secrets of Rockhampton’s prehistoric past with Capricorn Caves’ Fossil Fossicking workshop.”

Many of the fossils date all the way back to 50,000 years ago and any significant finds will be showcased at Queensland Museum.


While diving back into Rockhampton's past, there will also be opportunities for keen actors to try their hand at Shakespeare with a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
