Emu Park is the neighbor to the large city of Rockhampton in Queensland, Australia. It is located at the meeting point between the Outback and the famed Great Barrier Reef in the Capricorn Coast.

From Emu Park, inquire with your hostel owner to find out where the local ferry is. Take it up to Great Keppel Island, which is a good base to embark on an adventure. You can go fishing on the reef, sleep under the stars, or even visit the cattle farms of the Beef Capital of Australia, as the area is fondly called. The Keppel Islands consist of reefs, beaches, bushes, and small sandy coves. The water here is very calm and good for swimming, as well as snorkeling, waterskiing, and more. You can also check out the many species of fish and coral in the water while swimming.

The Koorana Crocodile Farm is one of the prime destinations nearby. It has many of the largest captive crocs in the country. You can also watch as the mothers and their children go about their days: You may be even be able hold a baby crocodile in your arms. If your hostel allows it, take a picnic basket along and lunch outside the farm before heading back in to see the crocodiles being fed.

Another option if you are not in the mood to see the fierce predators is the Turtle Walk, which is a popular tourist destination. Other sights include the local Botanical Gardens in Rockhampton, the nearby limestone caves that can be explored, and the zoo at the city. Staying in Emu Park is far cheaper than in the city, though, with local hostels and homestays available throughout the year.
