Practice/Town Information: Busy mixed billing practice of 4 GPs, large diverse patient demographic with full patient list, and a multidisciplinary supportive team environment. The Gladstone Region is the gateway to the Southern Great Barrier Reef. Like nowhere else, the Gladstone Region is a striking juxtaposition of industry and pristine environment of the world heritage listed Great Barrier Reef, including the iconic Town of 1770/Agnes Water, rural hinterland and striking sandstone wilderness.
Its stunning locations include access to Great Barrier Reef islands and lagoons, including Heron, Lady Musgrave, North West and Wilson, among others. The region is famous for fishing and boating. With Australia’s most northerly surf beach, Agnes Water and Town of 1770, proximity to National Parks, laid back coastal villages and rural hinterland lifestyles, make it an attractive destination for holiday makers, sea and tree changers. With a population of 62,979, the region stages over 200 festivals and events annually, including the famous Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race and harbour celebrations, Australia’s largest family friendly fishing tournament, the Boyne Tannum Hook-up and destination events, such as the Agnes Blues and Roots Festival, Luminous, Captain Cook 1770 Festival and Under the Trees Festival.
As one of the largest, bulk commodity ports in the world, the Gladstone Region has positioned its strength in large scale industry, resources and energy, engineering and advanced manufacturing with a highly skilled workforce. As a destination featuring a natural deep water port, Gladstone has cruise ship docking capabilities and is now a cruise stop-over destination for over 15 domestic and international cruises annually, with increasing and growing potential in this market. The region lies on the east coast of Queensland, Australia, within a one hour flight of Brisbane.
