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 12 September 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.

Famous quotes containing the word centre:

    Here in the centre stands the glass. Light
    Is the lion that comes down to drink. There
    And in that state, the glass is a pool.
    Ruddy are his eyes and ruddy are his claws
    When light comes down to wet his frothy jaws
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
