Boat house Cafe
Smart City WI-FI
Gracemere Pump Track
The Development of the Riverside Precinct is one of the most obvious changes in Rockhampton during Margaret's terms as Mayor. The previous traditional Quay Street layout was replaced with a wide boulevard space at street level and the lower bank area was fitted out with water jets and community spaces.
Rockhampton Museum of Art (the Art Gallery)
Rex Pilbeam is famous for many things, but not the least of which is his legacy Art Collection. Margaret championed the development of the new RMOA to house his collection and to provide a focal point for the local Arts scene.
Cedric Archer Park
Gracemere is the growth centre for the region but its parks were desperately in need of renewal when Margaret was elected to the Regional Council as Mayor. She turned her attention to this park and the waterpark, pump track and skatepark soon saw families flocking there.
As Mayor, Rockhampton Regional Council contributed $6 million for the Kershaw Gardens restoration and upgrade.
After more than Three and a half years after Severe Tropical Cyclone Marcia forced the Rockhampton Council to close the Gardens, Kershaw Gardens was officially re-opened on 11 August 2018.
