Capricornia Correctional Centre

The Capricornia Correctional Centre is located in Central Queensland, Australia, and services mainly the Rockhampton and Central Queensland areas. It is a medium security facility and can hold up to 400 inmates.

Construction of the centre began in August 1999, and it was officially opened on September 12, 2001. The centre replaced the Rockhampton Correctional Centre (also known as Etna Creek Prison), which had been built in 1969. A portion of the RCC was incorporated into the new prison, which was built on a site adjacent.
