A district with colourful early history of tin and gold discoveries.

There are many interesting geological formations in the Gladstone - South Mt Cameron area and this is a favoured spot for lapidarists.

From Gladstone visitors may travel to Musselroe Bay, Ansons Bay and the Eddystone Lighthouse - the road continues onto St. Helens but conditions should be checked beforehand.

To the north east of Gladstone, towards the coast, was the once substantial township of Boobyalla. This has almost completely disappeared but remains of buildings and the cemetery can be found with local guidance.

Gladstone provides northern access to the Mount William National Park; a coastal park popular with campers and picnickers, which is the major Tasmanian habitat of the Great Forester Kangaroo.

Gladstone is the northern access to The Bay of Fires.
