The Rockhampton Heritage Village is a tourist attraction and multipurpose venue located in Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia.
Situated on corner of the Bruce Highway and Boundary Road in the suburb of Parkhurst, it was officially opened by Rockhampton City Council mayor Jim MacRae and Federal Member for Capricornia Paul Marek on 8 May 1998.
Laid out as a township museum on 11.4 hectares of land, the Rockhampton Heritage Village consists of approximately 40 buildings, with a mixture of both original historical buildings or replicas which have been preserved or designed to focus on the history of Central Queensland since European settlement.
The attraction is mainly run by volunteers from the organisation Friends of the Heritage Village, but a small number of paid Rockhampton Regional Council employees also work on site.

  • This Heritage Village is very interesting. I especially liked the School, Hospital, Doll museum, and the cabins. It's interesting to compare it to our Heritage villages on the west coast of Canada...

  • This a great look at the history of the local area. Great displays and people in period costumes. The admission price is well worth it.😀😀😀👍👍👍
  • Wonderful history and the staff were all very knowledgeable from the front desk to the mechanics out in the restoration shed. Can easily spend 3 or more hours here. Thanks to all the volunteers.
