This is the 21st swap and a special welcome to the swappers who have attended every year since 1996.

Welcome to the treasure hunters from all over Central Queensland – Mackay, Emerald, Bundaberg, Yeppoon and Rockhampton who all line up as early as 5.30am Saturday for a 6am start. Five gates around the ground will be open all day.

Saturday breakfast is served at a number of stalls. Food, drinks and expresso coffee will be available all day, with all profits going to local charities. The People’s bar will be open from 10am till 6pm. 200 volunteers man admission gates, food stalls, administration and set-up and clean-up. This involves members from various community, service and sporting groups and the All Classic Motor Club of Central Queensland Inc.

Rocky Swap has been a success story since 1996 because of a fantastic working partnership between “Rotary Club of Rockhampton North Inc.” and “All Classic Motor Club of Central Queensland Inc.”. It shows community groups working hand in hand for the benefit of their community.

The Rocky Swap is one of the biggest events on Rockhampton's calendar, with over 15,000 people expected through the Showgrounds gates.

Tully Gorge National Park

Tully, Cassowary Coast Area
Free Entry
Be delighted in the sights as the Tully River plunges down the Cardwell Range, carving a swathe in the lush, world heritage rainforest on its way to the coast. You can explore both ends of the park from a variety of locations.

Millaa Millaa Falls

Millaa Millaa, Tablelands Area
Free Entry
Millaa Millaa Falls are magnificent waterfalls surrounded by lush rainforest located on the Waterfalls Circuit, along with Zillie and Ellinjaa Falls. The falls cascade perfectly to a pristine waterhole below where you can enjoy a refreshing swim in the cool water.

Frankland Islands Dive Site

East Russell, Cairns Area
Located south of Cairns, the Frankland Islands don’t see as many tourists as other destinations off this busy holiday city, making it the perfect destination for the snorkeler and less experienced diver.

Curtain Fig National Park

Yungaburra, Tablelands Area
Free Entry
View a spectacular curtain fig tree from different vantage points along a boardwalk in this small but popular national park. This large fig tree is unique because the extensive aerial roots, that drop 15 metres to the forest floor, have formed a 'curtain'.

Millstream Falls

Ravenshoe, Tablelands Area
Free Entry
Millstream Falls is reputedly Australia's widest single-drop waterfall. The falls flow over the edge of a columnar basalt lava flow, a legacy of the Atherton Tableland's volcanic past. Millstream Falls National Park is on the western edge of the World Heritage Area.

Russell River National Park

Bramston Beach, Cairns Area
Free Entry
Paperbarks and mangrove forests line the many creeks and rivers in tranquil, unspoiled Russell River National Park. Part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage area, the park sits near the estuary of the Russell and Mulgrave rivers and is a fisher's paradise.

Pepina Falls

Millaa Millaa, Tablelands Area
Free Entry
Pepina Falls are best viewed in the time just after the "Green Season". The "Green Season" sometimes known as the wet season runs from January to the end of April most years. Located in a little seen area off the Old Palmerston Highway (the scenic route between Millaa Millaa and Ravenshoe) on Maalan Road they certainly provide a photographic opportunity.

Mission Beach

Mission Beach, Cassowary Coast Area
Nature takes centre stage at Mission Beach with its long unspoilt beaches, deserted islands and white-water rivers fringed by rainforest. There are no crowds at this seductive and easy going destination which is perfect for relaxation or discovering adrenalin pumping outdoor activities.

Josephine Falls, Wooroonooran National Park

Bartle Frere, Cairns Area
Free Entry
Josephine Creek starts as a gentle trickle high on the south-east side of the summit of Queensland's highest mountain, Bartle Frere. By the time it has travelled the 7.5 kilometres to the smooth granite boulders of Josephine Falls, it is a thundering torrent that will take your breath away.

Mt Hypipamee

Upper Barron, Tablelands Area
Free Entry
The Hypipamee crater is referred to as a volcanic pipe. The pipe was opened upward through surface rocks by gas produced from molten rock below and as a result of tremendous pressure, the vent exploded sending volcanic bombs far across the landscape.
