Get back to nature in this outdoor wonderland, smack bang in the centre of the Southern Great Barrier Reef. Boating, camping and fishing are all top of mind in the Gladstone region, where national parks and secluded beaches are par for the course.
The reef islands in this part of the world are true coral cays with easy access from the small seaside town of Seventeen Seventy (Town of 1770) and Gladstone harbour.
Tick off your fishing bucket list – from coral trout to red emperor, sweet lip and bass – they’re all here for the catching!
If you’re seeking sand and a laid-back community vibe, nearby beach towns are aplenty.
