Central Queensland has a reputation of being relaxed, peaceful, quiet and laid back. The authenticity of the experience and friendliness of the locals are recognised as being core strengths. The overarching ‘Central Queensland’ destination banner covers the tourism regions of Gladstone and Capricorn.
The Central Queensland region incorporates the Cities of Gladstone and Rockhampton and the 11 Shires of Banana, Bauhinia, Calliope, Duaringa, Emerald, Fitzroy, Jericho, Livingstone, Miriam Vale, Mount Morgan and Peak Downs. Statistically, the Central Queensland region is aligned with the Fitzroy Statistical Division (SD), although the Shire of Miriam Vale is not included in the Fitzroy SD.
The Bundaberg North Burnett region is Australia’s premier location for observing nesting sea turtles and is known as the southern gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. The city of Bundaberg is the regional hub for air, rail and road access that services the coastal and hinterland areas. The region is rich in sugar and horticultural production and is home to the famous Bundaberg Rum and Bundaberg Ginger Beer as well as a number of hinterland wineries and farm-gate sales of fresh produce. To the west lie national parks including spectacular Cania Gorge, Auburn River and Goodnight Scrub and inland recreational dams including Lake Monduran, Lake Paradise and Lake Gregory.
