A Rockhampton Doctor has been arrested on child porn charges in Canada.

The Bulletin reports Skin Care specialist Stephen Peter Menzies Murray is accused of making, possessing and distributing child pornography.

The 57-year-old from Frenchville was taken into custody during a visit Canada's Prince Edward Island this month.

It is believed a member of the public reported Murray to police.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police has reached out to Australian authorities.

Murray will face a Prince Edward Island court on Friday for a "show cause" or bail hearing to determine if he will remain behind bars.

The activity allegedly took place in a public area.
