At the heart of the Gladstone Region is the city of Gladstone. Gladstone is home to several of Australia’s most significant industries including a world-class alumina refinery and aluminium smelter, Queensland’s biggest power station, Australia’s largest cement operation and most recently, the development of three CSG-LNG processing and export plants.
The region also includes the townships of Calliope, Miriam Vale and Mount Larcom and enviable coastal towns of Boyne Island, Tannum Sands and the pristine and historically significant townships of Seven Seventy and Agnes Water. Villages and communities within the region also include Ambrose, Baffle Creek, Benaraby, Bororen, Bracewell, Builyan, Lowmead, Many Peaks, Nagoorin, Raglan, Rosedale, Ubobo and Yarwun.
Over the past five years, the Gladstone Region has experienced some of the fastest growth compared to any other Local Government Area (LGA) in Queensland, due to the massive LNG construction industry which has now been completed and is operational.
