Living in Gladstone

The Gladstone Region is a unique area of Australia, in the state of Queensland, where tourism, major industry and quality of life co-exist in harmony. Covering the City of Gladstone, and Shires of Calliope and Miriam Vale, with a regional population of over 47,000, the region incorporates rugged national parks, long sandy beaches, picturesque islands and one of the seven wonders of the world, the Great Barrier Reef.

The region's principal city, Gladstone, is located on the Central Queensland coast 550 kilometres north of the State's capital, Brisbane and provides easy access to the most southerly part of the reef, including Heron Island.

With a history of economic development driven by a dynamic, growth-oriented community, the region is keen to capitalise on its natural advantages. It can accommodate the needs of a modern industrial centre while still maintaining the recreational lifestyle of a coastal resort. Representing a key area of National and State economic development with major industry it includes the world's largest alumina refinery, Australia's largest aluminium smelter, a thriving fishing industry and a growing tourism industry.
