In the past I have been quite unfair to the city of Gladstone by making remarks about it that were less than complimentary. Being an industrial/mining town you go to Gladstone for one thing alone. As a result the population is largely itinerant. After you’ve done your time you head to a more “beautiful” destination.
But during a recent trip I made it a point to find something that is both beautiful and possibly unique in this harbour city. And I didn’t have to search far and long to find what I was looking for.
