"Quiet, casual and with great sunsets and sunrises."

"Macleay River Bank"

Smithtown, on the opposite side to the Macleay River to Gladstone, is a town of more modest homes, many of which have been raised above flood level. There is a great hotel on the riverside, and an interesting second-hand/antique rambling shop. The main reason for the village’s existence was the construction of a Nestle factory there.
