Visitors to the park have a choice of browsing the gift shop, going fossicking (tools and assistance provided), or taking a guided tour of the fossicking area and the gemstone cutting and pewter casting factories.

Rockhampton Art Gallery: with the fine quality of its Australian art collection, its frequent exhibitions and its busy program of activities, is the hub of Central Queensland's art scene.

Botanic Gardens: is regarded as one of the best in regional Australia.

Yeppoon: The township has retained its village style appeal yet offers a variety of wonderful restaurants, shops and galleries. A charming esplanade with grassy knoll, palms and a covered picnic and play areas form a backdrop to a vista of sea, sky and islands.
