Fairbairn Dam

Reviewed By Ian606 - Rockhampton, Australia

It is well worth the dive to the dam if you have a few hours to spare. The views form the lookout are great and the walk across the dam is interesting.

Botanic Gardens

Reviewed By Kelvin J - Bundaberg, Australia

Although Emerald isn't a big town, and we found the Gardens by driving around, they aren't well sign posted. We enjoyed our stroll around ...is excellent for the walkers, runners and fitness nuts, but felt the whole gargens are over rated. It is a work in progress with a lot more to be done....certainly has potential.

Sunflower Painting

Reviewed By Gazzax2 - Brisbane, Australia

Who doesn't love one of Australia's Big Things? A suitable place to stop on a drive - a nice park for a walk, marvel at the big painting, shops nearby and the historical centre might be open.

The Village at Emerald

Just around the corner from the regional township of Emerald sits the shopping Centre of The Village at Emerald. Anchored by Woolworths, together with a variety of over 20 specialty stores such as Donut King, Jay Jays, Just Jeans, Lenard’s Poultry and Rockmans, no one leaves dissatisfied at The Village. So shop, explore and relax...only at The Village at Emerald.

Emerald Art Gallery

Reviewed By Mark G

I was surprised that there was only one room of art, although some of it was really good. There were a number of local pieces and results of local mentoring; I think the pieces on display would vary based on what was being taught.
