Happy birthday Rockhampton

HAPPY birthday Rockhampton ? it's time to party!

The city will celebrate its 150th birthday with a bang this weekend. Heaps of sesquicentenary (150 years) celebrations have been planned to mark the anniversary of the city's settlement in 1855.

A street parade, historical talk and a re-enactment of the settlers' discovery of the city are just some of the birthday celebrations.

But the festivities don't stop there.

This weekend is set to be one of the biggest social weekends ever, as it also includes the Big River Jazz festival, Wilpeena races, St Brendan's rodeo and plenty more.
