Ecofest Ecofest

Ecofest is one of CQ's biggest free environmental awareness events and coincides with World Environment Day.

This year's 'Grown in Gladstone' theme sums up all that is good about living in the region and all that must be done to protect the quality of our lifestyle and health of the environment.

Last year, more than 10,000 people turned out for the event so why not see it for yourself?
