    Travelling in Gladstone with a Hire Car

    Originally developed as an industrial city, Gladstone's main income came from a Meat processing plant built in the late 1800s, and then an alumina refinery which replaced the plant in the 1960s. While the refinery does still function today, the area is now popular with tourists wishing to escape city life and soak up the sun.

    To learn a little about the history of the city and its culture, drive your car hire to the Gladstone Regional Gallery and Museum, where you'll find a large collection of Australian art, as well as displays about the local history. The Maritime Museum also has lots to offer, telling the tale of early sail and steam-powered boating in the area. For an insight into the local plant life, drive your hire car over to the Gladstone Tondoon Botanic Gardens, where you can see a large collection of plants from the local area, as well as Far North Queensland.

    To experience the magnificent marine world, drive your hire car down to the harbour, and head out on a cruise. You can choose from cruises to several nearby islands, or visit the southern section of the Great Barrier Reef. Although having a strong connection with the rivers and the sea, there are plenty of land-based activities for visitors to do also.

    A short drive south in your car hire, you will find Lake Awoonga, with barbecues and maintained walking trails. The lake is great for swimming and has also been stocked with many native fish, making it an ideal spot for dropping a line. Also close to Gladstone is Gecko Valley, where local wines are produced and sold. What better way to enjoy your holiday than to unwind at the end of the day with some fresh local food and wine.
