The Gladstone Region

Gladstone City serves as a gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and Heron Island. It is situated on one of Australia's largest and safest harbours, making it ideal for water recreation. Sprawling parklands and a stunning marina are elements in Gladstone's lifestyle, along with award-winning restaurants and modern shopping facilities.

The region boasts beautiful beaches, lush forests, historic towns, and areas of environmental significance as well as a relaxed, tropical atmosphere which makes the Gladstone area, 'The Region of Choice'.

In addition to work and play, the Gladstone Region is also the ideal place to learn with high-quality educational facilities available to youngsters from pre-school to Year 12, in addition to the Gladstone campus of the world-class CQUniversity and its range of TAFE courses.

Maintaining the region’s enviable liveability by balancing the health of our natural environment with the need for continued economic development is of the highest priority to Council, as evidenced by its advocacy for renewable energy projects to create a clean energy future for the region.
