Barney Point Beach – Gladstone

Barney Point Beach is located along Prince Regent Esplanade and Young and Barney Streets on the foreshore in the southeast of the city of Gladstone. Barney Point Beach is named after Lieutenant Colonel George Barney, who commanded the expedition to establish the Colony of North Australia in 1847. Gladstone is around 524km from Brisbane or 118km from Rockhampton.





Barney Point Beach is the only swimming beach in the township of Gladstone. It is a 300m long east-facing beach that usually only receives low wind waves generated inside the harbour. It is composed of coarse sand and pebbles and consequently has a relatively steep beach face, fronted by 200 m wide tidal flats. The terrain is slightly sloped with some native vegetation, including mangroves.





There is a beautiful park around the beach area with a walking track along a stone wall, perfect for jogging, cycling or scooters. The park runs along Young Street on levelled terrain, with grass and some big native trees as well as exotic trees and extends to Friend Park, situated on a rise. The low-lying section of the park features picnic shelters with free BBQ stations, a children's playground, and a toilet block surrounded by a well-maintained green lawn.
