Emerald is the gateway to one of the richest sapphire fields in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s here you’ll find the largest Van Gogh sunflower painting in the world, reaching skywards for 25 metres. Emerald is the unofficial capital of the Central Highlands and indeed the Central Queensland coal industry.
More importantly, it’s a sought-after destination for travellers thanks to the modern facilities, thriving dining precinct and close proximity to the red claw-rich Lake Maraboon. Big barramundi are also regularly reeled in from the depths and free electric and wood-fired barbecues are available.
