A woman accused of using her mobile phone when her car struck and killed a motorcyclist has faced court.

Bianca Yule Hope, 26, appeared before Rockhampton Magistrates Court on Thursday on charges including dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death in relation to the incident, which occurred in June.

It's alleged Hope's car struck two motorbikes while travelling along Four-Mile Road at Kabra, near Rockhampton, during the incident.

One man, Harry Heyes, 61, died at the scene while his brother Trevor, 58, sustained a lower leg fracture.

Hope will return for a committal hearing on October 19.
