Found about 20 minutes drive from the Gladstone Central Business District is the small rural township of Mount Larcom. Terrific for a short break during your travels, Mount Larcom has picnic areas, pubs and several takeaway and supply stores to keep you going. Try one of the famous Big Mumma’s pies, pasties and sausage rolls!
A short drive further north is Gladstone’s most prominent natural landmark – Mount Larcom. A challenging trek up to the peak is rewarded with an uninterrupted 360-degree view of the Gladstone Area. Rural lands and the Gladstone Harbour can easily be recognised from the summit, and on a clear day you will see reef islands to the east and Rockhampton to the north.
Aside from Pies and Mountains, Mt Larcom is well-known for its yearly district show which attracts around 18,000 spectators over the two days.
