Central Queensland hints

After a trip to Central Qld, I have some hints for family historians visiting Rockhampton:

Arcade News, shop 6 in the Arcade off East Street, Rockhampton, phone (07) 49222044, has an outstanding selection of Central Queensland local history publications for sale. Very handy if you don't have time to visit local Council libraries or the Central Qld Family History Association!

Rockhampton Regional Council has appointed a new Heritage Collections Officer: Dr Dannielle ORR.

In Rockhampton, a great place for breakfast, lunch or a daytime snack is Sexie Coffie, on the corner of Bolsover and William Streets, half a block from the new Rockhampton Regional Library. For dinner I recommend the Punjabi Indian Restaurant, 137 East Street. (No, I am not related to the proprietors of these establishments - I just enjoyed eating there!)
