ABC Capricornia supported Rockhampton Art Gallery's summer exhibition Laser Beak Man. Through their support Rockhampton Art Gallery reached extended audiences raising awareness of the Gallery's exhibition program.

Through animation, drawing, puppetry models, interactive elements and much more, Rockhampton Art Gallery in partnership with ABC Capricornia showcased the largest exhibition of Laser Beak Man ever presented. Through an immersive journey Rockhampton Art Gallery told the story of artist Tim Sharp, a story that was further supported by ABC Capricornia, collective raising awareness about autism.   

ABC Capricornia takes the title for the ABC's second oldest regional station in Australia and is still producing local and national stories for television, radio and online.

ABC Capricornia, or as it was then known 4RK, began broadcasting in 1931 from the old Rockhampton Post Office. Today it is perched on the banks of the mighty Fitzroy River, where ABC Capricornia calls the old Office and Gold Store of the Mt Morgan Gold Mining Corporation building home. Built in 1898, it still contains an original vault.

Capricornia's Breakfast, Mornings and Afternoons programs are broadcast from the station, along with radio news updates. It is one of two regional stations in Queensland to have a television journalist and cameraman. But if radio and television aren't your thing, you can visit ABC Capricornia's website, friend on Facebook or follow on Twitter.

Live music, outside broadcasts and local stories meeting a national audience makes ABC Capricornia a valuable and long standing resource to the Central Queensland community.

Their role as an official Emergency Services Broadcaster is a responsibility we take seriously, as shown during our coverage of the 2008 floods, 2009 bushfires and 2010/2011 floods.
