ROCKHAMPTON'S Ella Schalch and Rachael Bartlett are taking a walk on the wild side.

The assistant managers of Rockhampton's Australian Geographic officially opened the doors to the new Stockland store last week.

"I'm so excited," said Ella.

"It's been a long time coming."

The store offers a multitude of products from telescopes, to stuffed dinosaurs and weather stations, and has so far been welcomed by shoppers.

"Everyone is coming in here to have a look," Ella said.

"We sell a bit of everything for everyone."

Shopper Kerry Dansie said she thought the store was a good addition to the Rockhampton retail market.

"I've got a lot of grandchildren and one is really passionate about dinosaurs, so this is great," she said.

"It's good to have something educational."

Ella said the store would offer free entertainment for the school holidays, with games, balloons and competitions on offer.

The store is the 13th for the company in Queensland.
