The Gladstone Region (map) provides the population of over 63,000 people with an enviable lifestyle within a strong and dynamic economy. With two of the world’s largest alumina refineries, Queensland’s largest multi commodity port and a number of other major industrial giants sited locally, the Gladstone region is known for its employment opportunities and skilled workforce.

The Gladstone State Development Area continues to attract large industry to the region, including the fledgling Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) industry. A strong retail and service sector within the modern urbanised city of Gladstone together with tourism and primary production (particularly beef cattle and timber) provide abundant choice for workers and opportunities for business people.

Well developed infrastructure and services, including a regional airport, continues to support the localised identity of the communities across the region, providing choice in lifestyle.

The Gladstone Region truly is a Region of Choice, offering a great place to live, work, play and invest. This website presents economic and demographic insights for Gladstone.
