Central Queensland Places | Exploring the region

Explore the towns and hidden gems of Central Queensland

I really love living in Central Queensland.

What never ceases to surprise me, despite having spent 35+ years of my life between Yeppoon and Longreach, is that I keep finding new places to explore and things to do.

On this page and the subsequent links from it, I hope to build a comprehensive insight into the places I've enjoyed, and even some of the hidden gems that don't always make it onto the tourist maps.

The list of places is alphabetical, rather than by region, to mix things up and keep it fun. Also, bear in mind that this is a 'living' page, i.e. I'm constantly expanding it, so you will see a few placeholders here and there just to remind myself to finish certain pages.

I hope you enjoy the Central Queensland Places section of the site. At time of writing, admittedly, the list is a bit coast-centric, but I have to begin somewhere :)

I'm a keen explorer so if there are any special places that you'd like me to check out, please add a comment at the bottom of this page. I definitely want to add more content from beyond Rocky and the beach, and I certainly will as time permits.

Have a brilliant day,

Andrew Thompson.
