Fitzroy goes in spotlight
THE Old Post Office Building in East St, Rockhampton, is an attraction in its own right as one of the city's most beautiful heritage-listed buildings but now there are even more reasons to visit.
FLOW, an interactive centre where people can immerse themselves with information about the mighty Fitzroy river system and its tributaries, opened to the public yesterday and is located in the Old Post Office.
The region's leading natural resource management group, Fitzroy Basin Association (FBA), has set up FLOW, an exciting new public space based on the largest river catchment flowing into the Great Barrier Reef.
FBA chairman Charlie Wilson said FLOW was Central Queensland's newest attraction, a fun and exciting public space with something for all ages to enjoy and best of all it was free.
"FLOW offers lots of variety including interactive maps, spectacular images of our region, videos and games - you can even record your own story and so much more," Mr Wilson said.
"It would take over 24 hours to drive around the entire circumference of the Fitzroy Basin, which is twice the size of the state of Tasmania.
"FBA has developed FLOW to centralise information and experiences allowing locals and visitors to learn about our region's natural assets, land uses, and what is being done to care for our land for the future.
"This brand new, fun, free and exciting Central Queensland attraction will be open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm, excluding public holidays make sure you come and check it out.
