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 at the Club Hotel, 1 Tank Street, Gladstone. We meet in the Bistro for dinner from 5.30pm, followed by a meeting in the Function Room, commencing at 7pm. 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.
You are also invited to keep in touch via the Zonta Club Gladstone facebook page.
