Rockhampton

Sunday 16th September, (Rockhampton).

About 23 kilometres north of Rocky are some caves called Capricorn Caves. These are privately owned caves, and our visit there today was well worth the trip. Being privately owned one gets a better commentary than government owned. These caves are actually classed as dry caves although when it is wet there are some active limestone formations. The most remarkable part of the caves is one cavern that is used as an actual church, as demonstrated by playing some music the cavern demonstrates really good acoustics. In fact I was so rapt in the splendour of the church cavern, would you believe I didn’t take any photos of it.

We also visited the Botanic Gardens in the area and were quite surprised with what they had to offer. They also have incorporated a Zoo, and considering entry was free, it was quite remarkable. When we are back in the area we intend to spend possibly a whole day there as it could easily be done.

We are now semi packed and ready for a move tomorrow to Yeppoon and stay there for a few days before heading further south.
