Welcome to Discovery Parks – Rockhampton on the Tropic of Capricorn in Central Queensland: 10 acres of landscaped gardens, views of majestic Mount Archer and 300 days of sunshine per year.

From our holiday park, begin your adventure with a drive to the peak of Mount Archer for spectacular panoramic views. Get up close and personal with crocodiles at Koorana Crocodile Park. Thirty minutes from your accommodation is the unforgettable Capricorn Coast and a cruise to Great Keppel Island is a must. Getting there is half the fun – coral viewing, fish feeding, snorkelling and swimming. When you arrive, enjoy a bush walk or just soak in the magnificence of Keppel Bay.
