Gladstone Area Promotion and Development

Get back to nature in this outdoor wonderland in the heart of the Southern Great Barrier Reef - from the reef to the beach, from the hinterland and countryside to some of the greatest fishing spots, there's a lot to discover in the Gladstone Region. Secluded coral cays are literally at your doorstep.  Soak up the secluded beauty as you snorkel the crystal clear waters.  The reef might be the number one attraction, but right behind that is the postcard perfect seaside communities of Agnes Water and Town of 1770.  The villages are untouched, pure and exciting and are home to a bright pink amphibious craft to access and explore the National Parks, restored lighthouse and pristine waterways.  You'll be welcomed at the Port of Gladstone by cheerful volunteers before you wander through the Feast on East markets along the foreshore.  The Great Southern Barrier Reef is Queensland's best kept holiday secret.
