Enjoy the best of Queensland’s sunny central coast by making Gladstone your base. Famed for its beaches, islands and waterways; Gladstone is formed around a natural deepwater harbour and affords visitors the opportunity to participate in water and seaside activities year-round.
The sub-tropical climate presents a tempting escape from cooler regions in winter months and close proximity to the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef means guests will experience a uniquely uninhibited part of this natural treasure. Access to Heron and Wilson islands is ideal from Gladstone with chartered boats operating frequently from the marina. Gladstone plays host to a wide variety of dining establishments plenty of which boast seafood delicacies local to the region. Fishing and crabbing spots are in abundance and with so many eateries dishing up mud crab, visitors will be delighted with the bountiful variations of their favourite dishes.
There is Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum and other intimate galleries for culture vultures and lush, native public gardens for wanderers who prefer the outdoors.
For pristine beaches unmarred by heavy touristic traffic and an easy entry point to the unique, rural towns of Tropical North Queensland, Gladstone welcomes visitors with warm, country hospitality.
