Hours of entertainment. The children's playgrounds are beautiful and well-maintained with a big grassy area if you want to play cricket, a water play area and picnic tables. There are also showers and great toilet facilities. I highly recommend this for families!

We stayed in the 20 free camp and explored Rocky from there. Kershaw gardens are massive. Great walks, water park and playgrounds for kids. Loved it. Thank you Rocky for the free camp. We spent lots of $ while we were there.

If someone passing Rockhampton, Kershaw Garden is a good spot to stop and grab lunch from nearby shops. It has a little park and artificial waterfalls.

Hi ,sorry but I can't say I actually saw any one there with dogs Nor did I see any signs that said dog friendly area. Rockhampton information centre very helpful so maybe if you gave them a ring they could help.
