About Us | Rockhampton River Festival

Like an artery

The Fitzroy River (Tunuba) has been the lifesource for the people of Central Queensland since the time of the Dreaming. In a celebration of its glory, and its strength to support the community, Rockhampton Regional Council launched Rockhampton River Festival in 2014. 

The three day celebration leverages the riverbank’s stunning natural and built heritage to forge fond and fun memories in the minds of many. The festival embraces these foundations to offer more arts, culture, entertainment, food and enjoyment for visitors.

Rockhampton River Festival runs from Friday 28 July until Sunday 30 July 2023.

Opening hours are: Friday 5.30pm - 10.30pm, Saturday 10am - 10pm and Sunday 10am - 8pm.
