Horticultural districts of Queensland. 7. Central Queensland



Horticultural districts of Queensland. 7. Central Queensland



Queensland Agric Jour 73(2): 73-84



The district extends from Rosedale north to Bloomsburg, and west to the Northern Territory border, and centers on Rockhampton. The climate is chiefly tropical with the heaviest rainfall in the summer from Jan. to April. The podsols of the coastal area are used for grazing, but the red-brown loams and some alluvial soils are devoted to horticultural crops. Although there are numerous streams in the district, facilities for irrigation are not good. Fruit and vegetable crops are discussed.
