FINDING a new hairdresser, family doctor and child care centre are some of the hardest parts when relocating.
For those considering moving to town, the newly launched website Hello Gladstone is helping with the hassle.
The interactive portal provides a comprehensive guide to local lingo, community services, our town's history, health services, parks and why Gladstone is an enviable place to call home.
Kurt Heidecker from Gladstone Health Partnership said the website was a chance for locals to take stock and appreciate what we had.
"The information we provide was formerly scattered in so many different places," he said.
"People are the lifeblood of a community. The website is all about helping to attract the best people to a great region and making informed choices."
The impetus for Hello Gladstone largely originated from an inaccurate perception of the area from those who did not reside here.
"Our image has taken such a battering over the years," Mr Heidecker said.
"It wasn't deserved and we are passionate about reigniting people's love of Gladstone."
