DISCOVER SOME OF LIFE’S BEST MOMENTS IN THE GLADSTONE REGION’S NATIONAL PARKS

Gladstone region residents are being encouraged to create, share and remember some of life’s best moments while visiting the unique parks and forests found within our picturesque region. In a new digital marketing campaign launched last week, the Queensland State Government is encouraging Queenslanders to explore natural treasures in their backyard!

Queensland is one of the most naturally diverse places in the world and is home to five World Heritage Areas and over 1300 national parks, marine parks, state forests and other protected areas. The Gladstone Region is home to a number of these unique environments, with many people taking advantage of our great climate to ‘think outside’ and get active around our region.

Queensland State Government Minister for Environment Leanne Enoch said that there are 485 camping areas in National Parks across the state. “Our parks and forests offer camping opportunities to suit everyone – from remote campsites with very few facilities to camping areas fully equipped with toilets, showers and barbecue areas,” she said.

Ms Enoch said a new and easy to use website has been launched that will make planning a camping trip much easier and will include everything visitors need to know and need to take. It will also offer helpful tips to have the best possible National Park experience.

“The website will also inspire families, friends and couples to explore the best locations within a couple of hours’ drive from key centres and highlight what to do and see in some of Queensland’s parks and forests,” Ms Enoch added.

“Visitors will be encouraged to share their memories and best moments with the hashtag #LifesBestMoments on the Queensland National Parks Facebook and Instagram channels,” Ms Enoch said.
