About the Discovery Coast

The Discovery Coast, situated 600 kms north of Brisbane in central Qld is a thriving centre for trade, commerce and development. From the majestic heights of Kroombit Tops in the west through to the deep coral lagoons of the Barrier Reef, the Gladstone region provides the population of 50,000 people with an enviable lifestyle within a strong and dynamic economy. Alongside the region’s reputation for natural beauty is its status as a major driver of the Queensland economy. The Queensland government and private enterprise are pushing hard to make the city a genuine competitor to Western Australia on Coal Seam Gas (CSG) and its potential to be converted to Liquified Natural Gas (LNG).

Balanced with large areas of green open space, including several national parks, historical sites, bush walks and marine activities, including fishing and crabbing, residents have a wide choice to explore and experience the great outdoors. A strong sense of community with a ‘can do’ attitude and a relaxed and friendly atmosphere permeates throughout the region. Well developed infrastructure and services, including a regional airport, continues to support the localised identity of the communities across the region, providing choice in lifestyle. These communities include the urban centres of Gladstone and Tannum Sands / Boyne Island, plus the smaller towns of Agnes Waters, Bororen, Calliope, Miriam Vale, Nagoorin and Tarwun. The town of 1770 and Agnes Waters are the closest mainland departure point to Lady Musgrave Island..

In addition to its leading port, the Gladstone Qld region boasts $77b worth of estimated resources projects either under construction or in advanced feasibility stages. Add to this over $5b of planned infrastructure spending and the true investment potential of real estate in the Discovery Coast region becomes evident. Discovery Coast real estate ranges from the executive house to rural properties for sale. When searching for accommodation, the area has numerous real estate agents to cater for your real estate needs.

Gladstone’s major LNG projects are seen as the brightest option for future regional growth in central Qld. Global LNG demand is expected to grow rapidly over the next decades. The Discovery Coast is truly a region of choice, offering a great place to live, work, play and invest.
