A tourist friendly community of approximately 560 permanent residents, Sapphire swells to several thousand visitors during the popular winter months. Situated on the banks of the beautiful River Red Gum lined Retreat Creek, “where sapphires were first discovered in the region”, the Blue Gem Tourist Park offers a range of facilities to the sapphire seekers. Accommodation ranges from ensuite and economy cabins to more than 40 powered sites positioned in tree lined, lawned gardens with several drive throughs to accept the larger vans and homes. Our convenience store boasts a range of fresh food and quality takeaway delights. We also offer unleaded, premium and diesel fuels from our service station. Owners Claire and Ewan Letts invite you to enjoy the mild winters of central Queensland and will make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
