Hundreds turned out to celebrate day one of the Gladstone Harbour Festival for 2021.

All of the usual attractions were popular yet again, with dozens of kids trying their luck in side show alley.

For those more into relaxation than thrill seeking, there was plenty on offer.

Market stalls and pop-up shops lined the festival, with everything from rainbow sour licorice to handmade wooden ornaments.

It is safe to say that the Gladstone Harbour Festival is the city's biggest attraction of the year and 2021's instalment has not disappointed.
