North Rockhampton

North Rockhampton, once the poor relation of Rockhampton on the opposite side of the Fitzroy River, overtook Rockhampton in terms of population during the 1970s. It provided the only natural growth space as Rockhampton's built-up area reached the limits of land above the flood level.
