THE 2015 NAIDOC Ball was a wonderful success with the coming together of indigenous and non-indigenous community members to celebrate the rich heritage of the Gladstone region.

Everyone was sparkling and the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre was decked out with theme colours.

There was live entertainment, a sit down dinner and buffet dessert bar.
