by Alexandra Tomkins

1. Four Wheel Driving in Kroombit Tops National Park

With plenty of 4WD tracks to choose from as well as camping areas and bush walks this national park can keep you busy for days. The Razorback Track and Loop Road are for the 4×4 experienced with high vehicle clearance and plenty of adrenalin.

4. Embrace Some Unique Water-Based Experiences

Agnes Water: With some of the best waves for all skill levels Agnes Water Main Beach is the best place to pick up some surfing lessons. Lessons are for all ages.

Lady Musgrave Island: Take a day tour to explore the Southern Great Barrier Reef on the coral island of Lady Musgrave Island. Tours depart from the town of 1770. In Summer turtles come ashore to lay their eggs.

Heron Island: Take a day trip to Heron Island to experience the research station and explore more of the Southern Great Barrier Reef. Access the island via sea plane which leaves from Gladstone Airport or if you’re planning on staying at the resort a boat transfer to the island departs from Gladstone Marina.
