Monday Male loves Gladstone's outdoors lifestyle

MAD keen about the outdoors, Jeff Wark loves being back in central Queensland. Originally from Bundaberg, he returned about 16 months ago from Brisbane.

"Gladstone's got so much to offer," he said. "There's the water sports, fishing, crabbing and camping."

Vice-president of the Gladstone Ski and Barefoot Club for the past year, he and his wife Malissa got straight into water-skiing on arrival.

Mr Wark said enjoying water sports was a fantastic way to get out and have fun with his wife and two small children.

Having worked in fly-in-fly-out roles in Western Australia, Mr Wark said it was nice to work for GLNG as a local.

"It's a small town, and it's so nice to be home every night with the kids," he said.
