The Gladstone Region is home to a number of beautiful walking and biking tracks for all abilities. From a light stroll to rolling hills, there are a number of different ways to explore both the natural and residential scenery.
The Round Gladstone Trail is clearly marked with signs with the trail logo. Each section of the trail has a unique number which is shown below the trail marker or engraved on a wooden post. The trail numbers indicate which section of the Round Gladstone Trail you are currently exploring.
Starting from the economic horticulture (orchard) section at Gladstone Tondoon Botanic Gardens, trail 1 is accessible via the main entrance gate on Glenlyon Road or via the Southern Cross Close entrance and consists of two sections. The Winery Circuit is 2.5km long and lies entirely in Police Creek Environmental Reserve (Gecko Winery is accessible from this trail). The Kirkwood Loop is 5.6km long and traverses Council and privately-owned property.
Start on Haddock Drive and are both approximately 3km long and follow the banks of Police Creek.
Experience the natural beauty of the Gladstone Region with a relaxed ride through the numerous parks and reserves scattered throughout the area. Bicycle riding is one of the most popular forms of recreation as it not only provides an environmentally friendly mode of transport but is also a source of exercise and relaxation for individuals, friends and families.
The bikeway winds along Boyne River, linking all of the local primary and high schools, shopping centres and community facilities. Sculpture, interpretive signage and amenities can be found along the cycleway, providing an interactive & educational package (orienteering, poetry and visual puzzle) unlocking the mystery of Boyne Rivers inhabiting Turtle, and the "Turtle’s Way".
Even a young child being carried on a baby seat on the bicycle must wear a helmet. Additional information regarding cyclists and road safety can be found on the Department of Transport and Main Roads website.
