Location and characteristics

Bouldercombe State School in the Fitzroy Central West Region is located 20km from the centre of Rockhampton on the Burnett Highway that links Rockhampton and Mount Morgan. Bouldercombe is a rural community with most adults working in Rockhampton.

The school is one of the oldest in Queensland, established in 1881, and celebrating 125 years of public education in 2006.    

There are approximately 135 children at the Bouldercombe State School.

The school is fully airconditioned.

All classrooms have access to the internet and e-mail facilities.

Bouldercombe is a member of the Greater Rockhampton District Sporting body.


The school has an original structure that houses the office, staff room, library, one classroom and archive room. The ground level of this building houses the kitchen facility. A newer building contains double teaching spaces and a separate demountable houses our Early Education Centre (EEC). Our most recent addition to our school buildings is a new Resource Centre which also contains a computer lab. The main Adminstration office was also upgraded in 2010. 

Many of the school facilities are utilised by the school community on a formal basis, such as the Bouldercombe State School P&C Tennis Association and the local Netball Club. School facilities include a large covered play area, two bitumen tennis courts, a bitumen netball/basketball court, a large paved eating area and a greenhouses. There are three well-grassed ovals that are used for sport and athletic carnivals and two shaded forts cater for the gross motor requirements of students. A large sandpit is located near the EEC.
