With sandstone wilderness to the west and the Southern Great Barrier Reef to the east, the heart of Gladstone City is blessed with the best of both worlds, not to mention perfect sailing conditions.
Get your bearings
- Kick-start the morning with a coffee and cruise of the harbour and walk to Auckland and Round Hill lookouts for 360-degree city views.
- Stroll through the cultural precinct on Goondoon Street lined with heritage buildings and take your time admiring over 100-hectares of native botanic gardens in Tondoon.
Hooked on fishing
- Live the angler’s dream catching yellowbelly on the ‘Bass to Barra Trail' and try to land the day’s biggest catch at a fishing competition.
- Find your big trophy-catch on board a charter boat or skip the ocean swell and dine on local reef fish, prawns, oysters and mud crab from the comfort of one of the many local restaurants.
