Our Region

The Central Queensland Highlands sits at the centre of two completely different worlds – the Southern Great Barrier Reef and Outback Queensland.

To find it, head inland from Rockhampton along the Capricorn Highway or if travelling north to south along the Great Inland Way. Both major highways form a junction in the Central Queensland Highlands and the ‘X’ these two highways make on a map, marks the destination’s spot.

The Central Queensland Highlands’ main business centre might be Emerald, but the region’s natural attractions can be found dotted like a compass around the region – Carnarvon Gorge, Sapphire Gemfields and Blackdown Tableland.

In between its 60,000km2 borders, you’ll find small country towns like Duaringa, Dingo, Capella and Blackwater, which beg you to Explore More.
