Gladstone is a city in the Gladstone Region, Queensland, Australia. It is approximately 550 km by road north of Brisbane and 100 km south-east of Rockhampton. Situated between the Calliope and Boyne Rivers, Gladstone is home to Queensland's largest multi-commodity shipping port.

The Gladstone Region was formed in 2008 through the amalgamation of three former local government areas.
Learn to surf - Agnes Water has the northern-most surf beach in Queensland, so catching a wave here is something to brag about. If you’ve never surfed before, take a class with a local surf school.
Drop a line - Gladstone’s top fishing spots include Lake Awoonga (home to barramundi, mangrove jack, grunter and perch), the boat-access-only Pancake Creek, and Boyne Island and Tannum Sands for saltwater fishing. If you fancy whiting, bream or flathead, try beach fishing at Farmers Point.
Discover the Southern Great Barrier Reef - See how many of the Great Barrier Reef’s Great Eight marine creatures you can spot – Heron Island is home to sea turtles, manta rays, reef sharks, gropers, clown fish, maori wrasse, humpback whales and dolphins.
Watch the sun slide in and out of the sea - Surrounded on three sides by the Coral Sea, the Town of Seventeen Seventy is one of the few places on the east coast of Australia where you can see the sun rise and set over water.
