Byen Rockhampton ligger ved floden 40 kilometer fra kysten. I det 19. og starten af det 20. århundrede var den en vigtig havneby, selv om klipper forhindrede sejlads længere op af Fitzroy River. Efterhånden som skibene blev større, blev der mindre kommerciel trafik på floden og i dag er det kun lystbåde og mindre fiskerbåde, som bruger floden.<ref>{{cite book|title=Rockhampton: A History of City and District|author=McDonald L.|first=|date=1981|publisher=[[University of Queensland Press]]|year=|isbn=0-7022-1620-8|location={{QLDcity|St Lucia}}, Qld.|pages=}}</ref> Kajanlæggene, som lå langs hele Rockhampton, er næsten alle sammen gået til eller er blevet flyttet.

Ejendommen [[Glenmore Homestead]] blev bygget i 1858 på den nordlige flodbred syv kilometer nordvest for Rockhampton. Det er registreret som bevaringsværdigt i [[Queensland Heritage Register]] og er i dag en turistattraktion.<ref name="chims">{{Cite web|url=https://apps.des.qld.gov.au/heritage-register/detail/?id=600823|title=Glenmore Homestead|date=|website=Queensland Heritage Register|access-date=15. oktober 2020}}</ref>
