Fitzroy River Basin

The Fitzroy River and its tributaries drain the largest area of any of Queensland's east coast river systems, entering the ocean at Port Alma, downstream from Rockhampton.

The river was named by the Archer Brothers, pioneer pastoralists, after the New South Wales Governor, Sir Charles FitzRoy, in 1853.
