Some 10k from Gladstone is the small junction town of Calliope. Calliope is now a corridor suburb of Gladstone.

The old church and War Memorial determined Calliope's inclusion in our town synopsis.

The town is reputedly named after the ship Calliope, which brought the Governor of New South Wales, Sir Charles Augustus Fitzroy to Port Curtis in 1854. Industries of the town and surrounds since that time have included gold mining, beef, timber, and more recently, tourism.

The Hotel is of the modern era.

Traveling west from Gladstone will take you through Calliope.
