About the Region
The Gladstone Region is a dynamic Central Queensland coastal region that provides an enviable lifestyle and economic stability for more than 63,000 residents.
Located about 550km north of Brisbane and covering a 10,500km2 area, the Gladstone Region is an industrial powerhouse of the Australian economy.
It is home to two of the world’s largest alumina refineries, Queensland’s largest multi-commodity port, the liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry and other industrial giants and is renowned for its employment opportunities and skilled workforce.
However, this is only part of the Gladstone Region story.
The region’s strong economy is balanced by an abundance of natural beauty and, as a gateway to the Southern Great Barrier Reef, its growing status as a tourism destination.
With beautiful beaches, lush forest, historic towns and areas of environmental significance as well as a relaxed, tropical atmosphere, the Gladstone Region is indeed ‘The Region of Choice’.
