Located in the heart of the Southern Great Barrier Reef, Queensland’s Gladstone region has plenty to offer from fishing, camping and hiking, to snorkelling or surfing.
- Secluded coral cays are literally at your doorstep. Swim with the turtles at Heron Island, or take a cruise over to Lady Musgrave Island for a snorkel in the calm reef lagoon where you can even pitch a tent and spend the night!
- Give your hiking boots a workout and explore the region’s agricultural and mining heart - there is plenty of four-wheel-driving, hiking and bushwalking to be done in the huge array of beautiful National Parks.
- Take that fishing trip you’ve always wanted. Head inland to some of Queensland’s top freshwater fishing spots and experience the thrill of catching a barra or mangrove jack or join a charter and drop a line in the Southern Great Barrier Reef.
- Settle in at one of Gladstone’s relaxed coastal communities with beautiful family-friendly beaches and plenty of activities to keep active including kayaking, snorkelling, surfing or sand boarding.
