Our Region

The Gladstone Region is home to over 57,000 people and has all the services and amenities you’d expect from a thriving regional metropolis including a university, multiple hospitals, cultural precincts, substantial tourist and shopping facilities and the recently upgraded airport.

The Gladstone Marina is a popular spot for boat owners and is home to the award-winning Spinnaker Park. This huge parkland offers two and a half kilometres of walking track that meanders through native flora, wetlands, ponds and a beach cove. East Shores is located on the otherside of the Marina inlet and boasts a free water play area for the children and young at heart. Take some time to enjoy the lush grassed areas as you take in the natural deep harbour that makes Gladstone unique. From this vantage point it’s possible to catch a glimpse of the rare snubfin dolphin at play in the harbour.

The main street of Gladstone, Goondoon Street, showcases the city’s rich heritage and magnificently preserved buildings, including the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum built in 1934. Modern sculptures stand in stark contrast to heritage-listed buildings as a testament to how industry shaped this important regional city.

​Gladstone’s population is young, cosmopolitan and progressive with families, singles, multicultural populations and religious groups.

The catchment area draws from a population of around 46,000 people in the immediate area.
