This part of Queensland is home to some of the finest beaches in the whole state, so make sure you include a visit to the golden sands and the blue waters as often as possible during your time here. With average temperatures between 20C and 30C from October to April you’re likely to want to take a dip in the ocean on more than one occasion, if only to give your body a chance to cool down.
One of the reasons for the popularity of Gladstone and the surrounding coastline is the easy access to the Southern Great Barrier Reef. No holiday to this destination is surely complete without a trip out to the reef, especially if you plan to do a little snorkelling in order to get a closer view of the coral. Needless to say, if you just want to see this natural wonder from the comfort of a boat that certainly won’t be a problem.
The Queensland coast plays host to a number of fascinating islands which are always worthy of exploration, and just a short distance from the heart of Gladstone lies one of the most impressive of them all. Curtis Island is home to some wonderful, and pleasingly unspoilt, beaches, a sparkling blue ocean and several square kilometres of wilderness. A day spent here is likely to become one of the highlights of the whole holiday.
