Gracemere

Gracemere Capricorn Queensland

Gracemere - Capricorn - Queensland

Gracemere is the heart of the Capricorn cattle industry as it plays host to the largest saleyards in the southern hemisphere. Located just nine kilometres from Rockhampton, Gracemere has all the charm of a classic country town including an Aussie pub with a contemporary angle. Horses and other livestock are rounded up into the saleyards each week to go under the auctioneers hammer.

Pioneers, The Archer Brothers, founded their home and opened up the Gracemere region in 1853, naming the area in recognition of Tow Archer's wife, Grace. Campdrafters gather annually at Paradise Lagoons to compete at Australia's richest campdraft. Fossickers will be kept busy with a 20 minute drive west of Gracemere on the Capricorn Highway at Mt Hay Gemstone park searching for gemstones and thunder eggs.
