Calliope

Calliope is a vibrant growing community, about 20 minutes drive west of Gladstone. With a relaxed rural atmosphere, Calliope is surrounded by farms and a beautiful hinterland landscape.

The area boasts a national park of rainforests and native bush, horse riding trails, bush camps, historical homesteads and lookouts with spectacular views over the entire Port Curtis area.

With a population of over 4,000 the town of Calliope has country pubs, an 18-hole Country Club with a challenging golf course, and the newly constructed Calliope Central Shopping Village. Just north along the highway is the Calliope River Historical Village, taking you back many years to capture some of the early history of the Port Curtis area.

Fishing enthusiasts are well catered for with boat ramps provided at Boyne Island, Tannum Sands, Calliope River and Lake Awoonga. Choice mud crabs and fish such as bream, salmon, whiting, cod and flathead can be caught from the Boyne and Calliope Rivers and the many estuaries running from these rivers. Lake Awoonga is a prime location for catching barramundi, with the bonus of being able to fish for these well-known angler prizes all year round.
