Zonta Club of Gladstone Inc.

 Gladstone Region is about 500km north from Brisbane and offers visitors close access to The Great Barrier Reef.   

The region surrounding Gladstone is a diverse and fascinating one, with an adventurous outdoor flavour complementing the busy, urban environment. The region includes beachside towns, secluded beaches, scenic national parks with Gladstone being a major port city, exporting minerals from central Queensland.

The Zonta Club of Gladstone was formed in 1991 with the official charter date in January, 1992.

The Club meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month in the Oval Room, Harvey Road Tavern, Clinton, at 6.15 pm for a 6.30pm dinner meeting. If you would like to be invited to attend a dinner meeting, please send an e-mail with your contact details. We also welcome all members visiting from other Zonta Clubs.
