Gladstone surrounds a magnificent water port first explored by Captain Matthew Flinders which he named Port Curtis in August 1802. It wasn't until 1847 when a convict settlement was attempted at the location, only to fail that squatters and settlers quickly took up the land surrounding the port.

Today Gladstone is home to Queensland’s largest port. A dynamic city that boast the worlds largest alumina refinery, the largest alumina smelter, a thriving fishing industry, and a growing tourism sector.

The Gladstone Region spans from the southern Great Barrier Reef of the Miriam Vale Shire to the south, the hinterland of the Banana Shire and Monto Shire to the west and the areas of Calliope Shire and Gladstone City. Just outside of Gladstone port is Facing Island and Curtis Island, with Curtis Island National Park. The Reef which comes within 50 km of Gladstone, contains some 13 vegetated coral cays, of which the best known are Heron, Masthead, North West, Wilson, Lady Musgrave and Lady Elliot Islands.

Boyne Island and Tannum Sands located just south of Gladstone offer many activities for the visitor. Boyne Island is also home to the alumina smelter producing some 490,000 tonnes of the metal each year. For the visitor, it is a region that has plenty on offer including a number of national parks.

Other items of interest are the Gladstone Harbour Festival and the Gladstone Seafood Festival.
