Not only is Gladstone the gateway to the Southern Great Barrier Reef with direct access to Heron Island, Lady Musgrave Island and the historic town of 1770 but passengers will also be welcomed by the $45 million foreshore re-development which will provide a world class family and lifestyle precinct.
Gladstone harbour is the largest natural harbour in Australia. Ships will dock at Auckland Point.
The city of Gladstone is developed on hills overlooking the focal point of its economic development - the natural deepwater harbour. The dynamic, modern city of Gladstone basks in a sub-tropical climate with islands, waterways and beaches providing year-round boating, fishing, swimming and surfing.
Great Barrier Reef Trips are on offer here.
Tannum Sands, 20 minutes south of Gladstone town, offers year-round swimming and a pretty esplanade and beachfront park.
