The twin towns Boyne Island and Tannum Sands on the Boyne River are gateway towns to Gladstone City. The area is a magnet for freshwater fishing enthusiasts, with Lake Awoonga open for fishing all year round. Take your own boat or hire one and spend the day going for barramundi, mangrove jack, grunter or perch.
Smell the aroma of a good Aussie feast cooked on the BBQ with seafood caught fresh from the banks of Boyne River. Catch your own or check out the seafood fare for sale at the local roadhouse or general store.
Boyne Island is home to one of the world's largest aluminium smelters where visitors can take the Mine to Market industry tour and learn about Gladstone’s mix of nature and industry.
