Are You Holding An Event? LET US HELP!

Last weekend was a wonderful showcase of major events that took place on the Capricorn Coast and in Rockhampton – the JRT TAG Southern Great Barrier Reef Golf Classic, Club Marine Brisbane to Keppel Tropical Yacht Race, the inaugural Yeppoon Triathlon Festival, Rocky Swap, Obstacles Gone Mad, Keppel Sea Kayak Symposium just a taste of the sheer number of options locals and visitors had to choose from!

However, it’s weekends like this that are a conspicuous reminder of why, if you’re planning to hold an event in or around the Capricorn Coast and Rockhampton, Capricorn Enterprise should be your first stop in your forward planning!

It is also important to note that major sporting events like the Brisbane to Keppel Yacht Race and the Golf Pro Am are part of a much larger Queensland program, the Queensland yacht race calendar and the Queensland Sunshine PGA tours, so those dates are determined by those tours.

2016 marks the tenth Anniversary of the Club Marine Brisbane to Keppel Yacht Race which will be held from the 5th to 7th August 2016.

Capricorn Enterprise’s events unit puts together the master calendar of events for the region each year, and we will provide you with free and frank advice on what else will be sharing your chosen date with your event.

By providing us with your event date in advance, we may also be able to help you to promote your event through all of our local, state and national media channels as well as via our own promotions, such as our online events calendar (, our weekly eblast to more than 2000 subscribers and our annual Lifestyle and Visitor Guide, which is our official publication for all visitors to the area.

We are also the first step in getting event funding from Tourism and Events Queensland, which can see you receive between $10,000 and $100,000 annually!

Members have access to many more promotional services, so don’t miss out on this key event service.  For further details or to just have a chat to our events team, please call Ellie on 07 4927 2055 or email

Until next time…
