Anchoring in Gladstone

Hi, is there anywhere to anchor in or around Gladstone, that is a row away from Gladstone itself, or within a row to a ferry wharf that goes to Gladstone?
I know Curtis ferries operate to Facing Is and Southend, but the smaller islands just opposite Gladstone are nice to anchor amongst , near Diamantina Is for example, as there are numerous jetties on these islands, like a jetty on Witt Is for example. Is there another ferry service to these smaller Islands?
would like to investigate the cheaper anchoring options as a preference.

Gladstone marina has three ( I think ) moorings opposite the marina . These are cheaper than a berth . They were in constant use by lots of different boats when I was there for a couple of weeks . I don't know how much cheaper .

Have a look at Quoin Island. Half of it was set aside for a resort and the other half has a number of freehold residential blocks.
There is a wharf there and I think the anchorage would be OK for your Top Hat.
Google maps satellite view shows a ferry type catermaran at the wharf on the southern end, there is a resort/retreat and about 20 houses on the island.

I think its about the cheapest marina in QLD so it might not cost much more than ferry trips to stay in the marina for a night or two.

And it is a very nice marina probably the most friendly & helpful we stayed at.

A suggestion that you call the Gladstone Yacht club as they have some club moorings out the front of the club, which is just around the corner from the marina.
