Customs House

208 Quay Street, Rockhampton 4700

Ph: 0749368000



Rockhampton’s Customs House is an example of the Classic Revival period architecture which was all the rage in Rockhampton around the turn of the century. Built between 1898 and 1901 of Stanwell sandstone the building has a huge copper dome and an elaborate semi-circular portico with a Corinthian colonnade.

The building is a powerful reminder of the importance that Rockhampton enjoyed as the major central coast port around that time.

Located on Quay Street alongside Rockhampton’s newly revitalised Riverside Precinct, Customs House is a must-do photo opportunity whilst exploring the Central Business District Heritage Walk.
