LNP candidate and sitting MP Michelle Landry, who is attempting to retain Capricornia for a second time in the face of a strong challenge by Labor's Russell Robertson, was delighted to have the Prime Minister in Rockhampton.

"It's a great morale booster as we near the end of the campaign,” she said.

No details have been released on what Friday's announcement will be but there is anticipation it will be focused on job creation.
