THE GLADSTONE REGION

The Gladstone Region is located in the heart of the Southern Great Barrier Reef and is the gateway to picturesque Islands and Reef, including Heron, Wilson, Lady Musgrave and the Capricorn Bunker Group of Islands.

Our Region is famous for its fishing and crabbing and with sensational spots such as Lake Awoonga, the Boyne and Calliope Rivers, Curtis and Facing Islands –you’ll never go hungry.

If you prefer a little more adventure, don’t be afraid to get off the beaten track and enjoy our pristine National Parks.  Rough and ready 4WD trails and walking tracks abounds within any of our 14 parks.

The postcard perfect coastline of the seaside communities of Boyne Island and Tannum SandsAgnes Water, Town of 1770, Turkey Beach and Baffle Creek are untouched, pure and exciting – imagine swimming in crystal clear waters, unwinding on your own deserted beach, kayaking or surfing alongside turtles and dolphins, sailing or bushwalking.

A trip to the Gladstone Region would not be complete without taking in the natural beauty of the Boyne Valley.  Just a short drive from Gladstone, the Valley is a rural community encompassing the towns of Nagoorin, Ubobo, Builyan and Many Peaks.
