The Criterion Hotel

Live bands play at the Criterion Hotel on Fridays and Saturdays. Expect the place to be packed until midnight (at least), regardless of which one of the many on-site bars you end up spending the evening at. Check the website for band show schedules.

Bars & Nightlife

Despite its size, Rockhampton offers plenty of different venues with a wide range of music and entertainment, with coastal beach bars and clubs enjoying a particular popularity. You can also go for low-key drinks at the pub or night-long partying out on the town if that's your jam.
