After your arrival in Rockhampton, it won't take you long to see that the city has strong country roots and prides itself as being the Beef Capital of Australia! Six bull statues representing the main breeds of the area are situated throughout Rockhampton. In addition to the six official bulls, keep your eyes peeled for other life-size bulls decorating premises around Rocky. These quirky statues are part of the tri-annual Beef Australia Expo, which has become an icon even for the Australian beef industry and a major event for the State of Queensland.
