About Tannum Sands

Tannum Sands is the surfing beach for the city of Gladstone. Originally it was established as a holiday settlement, mainly occupied by typical holiday ‘shacks’.

Expansion of Gladstone in the 1980’s saw the sleepy settlement become a beachfront residential area and an increasingly popular holiday destination. There is road access to and good parking right along the beach, together with a caravan park and beachfront camping reserve.

The settlement has two caravan parks, including a beachfront camping reserve and a small shopping centre. The beach is divided in two by low tide rock flats.
