South Gladstone has a State primary school dating from 1898, but its significant growth period is traceable from the opening dates of the Toolooa State high school (1981) and the nearby Trinity College (1985).
It also has a TAFE and two out-of-town cinema sites.
Council provides several camping locations throughout the region and asks users to ensure they familiarise themselves with the requirements of each location before camping.
