Mt Larcom Cafe and Collectables
This is a great place to visit, a real smalltown business.
It's apparently a very popular spot for a tourist stop and you would think Mt Larcom Cafe and Collectables was a landmark in itself.
The cafe building is over 110 years old and it certainly has an old-world charm.
The meals are fantastic and very cheap, I just loved the home-made pies.
There is an assortment of local crafts, second hand goods and collectibles in one room off the main cafe.
There are clean toilets and a picnic area opposite the cafe.
You will pass through Mt Larcom, 32 K's from Gladstone driving to/from Rockhampton.
Sweetberry's Gladstone Page
Gladstone is a harbour city which has captured both the enthusiasm of its citizens and the attention of the world. From a sleepy township a quarter of a century ago, this dynamic, modern city basks in a sub- tropical climate with islands, waterways and beaches on the doorstep offering year-round boating, fishing, swimming and surfing.
The Gladstone Region is located 500km from Brisbane and offers visitors close access to The Great Barrier Reef. The clear aquamarine waters and underwater wonders of the reef provide one of the best fishing and scuba diving locations in the world.
Gladstone has a population of 27,000 people and is known as an industrial city with a green heart. Set on the foreshores of one of Australia's busiest ports.
I have enjoyed several visits to Gladstone, but the longest I have actually stayed, was a weekend.
