Cruises from Gladstone
Gladstone, in Queensland, Australia, boasts sun, sea, national parks, and is the gateway to the south of the Great Barrier Reef – a vibrant part of the reef that has remained relatively untouched. While out on the water you can visit the nearby islands, including Herron Island, which is renowned for reef diving, and the uninhabited Wilson Island. Inland from the coastline you will find Cania Gorge National Park, which is abundant with sandstone cliffs. The region is also famous for its fishing and crabbing at sensational spots such as Lake Awoonga, the Boyne, and Calliope Rivers.
One can also drop a line in the Southern Great Barrier Reef.
