Check out our list of local ideas below…

  1. The shelves at Keppel Bay Marina at Rosslyn Bay, Capricorn Coast are stocked for Christmas! On your way to Keppel Bay Islands, stock up with their huge range of Mirage snorkelling gear including masks, snorkels, fins and reef shoes. Add in some stubby coolers, key rings, magnets, towels, bags and more. The hardest part will be choosing. And for even more delight, throw in a gift voucher for The Waterline Restaurant and spend time dining on the best local beef, seafood and produce our region has to offer.
  1. Give them an experience they will remember with a cave-raving adventure! The Capricorn Caves (just 23 kilometres from Rockhampton) offers gift vouchers for all their tours, or a value of your choosing. And best of all, they have no expiration date. With Solstice Tours kicking off from 12th December, gift your favourite people with one of the most spectacular natural phenomena in the Southern Hemisphere.
  1. Pudding and spice and all things nice – that’s what Capricorn Aged Rum is made of! Or perhaps gold, frankincense and myrrh is more your style? Either way, the Saleyards Distillery in Rockhampton is full of award-winning goodness. With bon bons and gift ideas galore, this is definitely a stocking filler that will bring a smile.
  1. For a localised gift that is Hot Hot Hot, grab a t-shirt or tank from The Capricorn Line. Boasting a magnitude of local pride and quirky Rockhampton and Capricorn Coast humour, these quality tees are affordable, fun and the perfect gift for visitors and locals. They come in adults and kid’s sizes and free delivery is available within the Rockhampton region.
  1. It doesn’t get any better than unwrapping the gift of SCUBA on Christmas morning! Keppel Dive at Great Keppel Island have vouchers ready and waiting to show off some of the best the Southern Great Barrier Reef has to offer. You know your loved ones will be getting the very best as they join the PADI certified local team for an underwater adventure.
  1. From unique coastal fashion, local products and unique homewares and décor, the Coastal Artisans at Coastal Funk in Yeppoon on the Capricorn Coast will be sure to help you discover the perfect gift. Online and instore purchases available.
  1. A gemstone is always a sure winner on Christmas Day, so plan a trip to the Sapphire Gemfields in Central Highlands. You can fossick to find your own unique stone or check out the ready-made extensive range of Australian Sapphire Jewellery including rings, earrings, pendants and bracelets at Rubyvale Gem Gallery, M&M Sapphires and Miners Heritage (grab a voucher for an underground walk-in sapphire mine experience too!).

  1. Buy a voucher to fossick for thundereggs or surprise your loved ones with a keepsake treasure from Mount Hay Gemstone Tourist Park. Their online gift shop is brimming with an extensive and unique range of gemstone and pewter products, which are all manufactured on site. Take the 30 minute drive from Rockhampton to Mount Hay.
  1. Christmas is certainly a time for giving, so this year, give a gift to the Keppel Turtle Fund (KTF) and play your part in protecting our turtle-y awesome wildlife. Relying on fundraising and donations, KTF looks to engage with the community to grow reef appreciation, education and rehabilitation on Great Keppel Island. A perfect idea for the person who has everything! Donate today –
  1. After the year that’s been, a weekend away has never sounded better! So for the gift that keeps on giving, grab an accommodation or attraction voucher from any of our local tourism businesses. The celebration doesn’t need to stop at Christmas Day – lock in your New Year getaway with some great holiday deals –
