ABOUT THIS REGION Gladstone is an Australian city approximately 550 kilometres by road north of Brisbane and 100 kilometres south-east of Rockhampton. Situated between the Calliope and Boyne Rivers, Gladstone is home to Queensland's largest multi-commodity port. Centre of the Southern Reef, the Gladstone region is a unique area of Queensland. This dynamic area basks in a sub-tropical climate with islands, waterways and beaches on the doorstep of the Great Barrier Reef. It also boasts several impressive national parks which add camping and four wheel driving to the adventures you can experience. So many landscapes, variety and sunshine provide endless opportunities for enjoyment. From the City of Gladstone itself, to the spectacular hinterland areas, to amazing reef islands, this region offers many exciting places to visit. To the south lie the shires of Calliope and Miriam Vale with scenic national parks and idyllic, secluded beaches. The twin towns of Agnes Water and Seventeen Seventy are unspoilt beach side villages and the first place in Queensland that Captain James Cook stepped ashore. Renowned for its beautiful foreshore parks, Boyne Island, and its sister city of Tannum Sands, offers long sandy beaches for safe coastal recreation. Gladstone is where you can get back to nature and connect with your surroundings. The reef islands within the region are true coral cays. Day trips are on offer to Lady Musgrave Island and Fitzroy Lagoon where visitors can enjoy diving, snorkelling, fishing, reef walking or exploring the flora and fauna. Or stay a little longer at Wilston Island, with luxurious tented accommodation or Heron Island which offers accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets.
