Explore the landscapes and industry of Central Queensland


Registration is now open for a ‘tag-along’ road trip to Central Queensland in early September.  The trip will visit a number of points of interest with a focus on their geographical significance. 

The trip will start formally in Monto on Monday 5th September and visit Mt Morgan, Rockhampton, Gladstone and places in between on sealed roads over a period of seven days, finishing in Gladstone on Sunday 11th September.  Participants need to be in Monto by Sunday 4th September and can choose their own route and timing for their journeys from Brisbane to Monto (and return from Gladstone to Brisbane).  On 11th September, the activity will be a harbour cruise which will finish at 1.00 pm, allowing for an early departure to Brisbane for those who wish.  The distance to be covered by the trek from Monto via Rockhampton to Gladstone will be about 600 km while Brisbane-Monto and Gladstone-Brisbane together add another 1000 km.

For those who wish, carpooling is encouraged.
