Gladstone Travel Guide: 57 reviews and 142 photos


Gladstone is a harbour city which has captured both the enthusiasm of its citizens and the attention of the world. From a sleepy township a quarter of a century ago, this dynamic, modern city basks in a sub- tropical climate with islands, waterways and beaches on the doorstep offering year-round boating, fishing, swimming and surfing.

The Gladstone Region is located 500km from Brisbane and offers visitors close access to The Great Barrier Reef. The clear aquamarine waters and underwater wonders of the reef provide one of the best fishing and scuba diving locations in the world.

Gladstone has a population of 27,000 people and is known as an industrial city with a green heart. Set on the foreshores of one of Australia's busiest ports.
I have enjoyed several visits to Gladstone, but the longest I have actually stayed, was a weekend.

    Beautiful pictures and good tips. The botanic gardens, Gecko Valley Wines and a trip to Heron Island and the coral reefs sound very, very interesting!
