HISTORY

First explored by Captain Cook in 1770 and then established in 1863 the town was named after British Statesman William Ewart Gladstone. Gladstone's first wharf was built at Auckland Point in 1885 and was connected to Brisbane by rail in 1897. Development was slow until 1893, when a meatworks was established at Parsons Point. Queensland Alumina Limted was established in 1963 on the site of the old meatworks. Gladstone's port facilities were expanded and the city launched into an era of industrial development and economic prosperity.

INDUSTRY

Gladstone's primary industries are mining-related. The Gladstone Region is home to a thriving 21st Century industrial base served by one of Australia's busiest ports, the Port of Gladstone. The Port of Gladstone is the fifth largest multi-commodity port in Australia and the world's fourth largest coal exporting terminal. With recent and continuing investment in the LNG industry, which is expected to play an increasingly important role in global energy markets over coming years, the Gladstone Region's strong industrial growth looks set to continue.
