Gladstone - Qld - Australia

Named after the British Prime Minister, Gladstone is one of Australia's busiest ports on the eastern Queensland coast. It serves as an access point to Heron, Mast Head and Wilson Islands on the Barrier Reef. Originally settled in 1847 as a colony by the New South Wales government, it was abandoned in 1848 but was resettled by squatters in 1853.
