"Glenden"

Glenden is a purpose built mining town with the majority of the real estate owned by a major mine operator. Basic shopping needs are met by the existence of a grocery store and a handful of small shops. There is a service station, hardware, one public venue that has a family friendly atmosphere and dining. A school caters from pre school to senior although the numbers of students in the higher grades is very low and boarding school is the popular option. there are a small number of sport options but not much for children to do. A lovely public swimming pool precinct is popular. There are basic medical facilities and no hospital. A safe community where many locals know each other and most of the population work at the same place. a single persons residential facility is located on the fringes of town. Lovely golf course and bowls club. A little over two hours drive east to Mackay which is a large regional centre.
