Gladstone Queensland

Gladstone, Queensland's largest port, is located 550 kilometres north of Brisbane and 100 kilometres south-east of Rockhampton.  Gladstone is placed between the Calliope River to the north and the Boyne River to the south. Both rivers lead into the deep water harbour for which Gladstone owes much of its industrial development. The harbour is protected by Facing Island and Curtis Islands.

The popular Boyne Island/Tannum Sands twin towns are approx 25 km south. Gladstone Airport is 10km (6 miles) from town centre.

Heron Island is surrounded by reefs off the coast of Gladstone, perfect for diving, snorkeling, fishing and nature-walks. It can be accessed by a one hour helicopter flight or a two hour boat ride from Gladstone.
