Emerald, Australia, is a small town on the banks of the Nogoa River in the Central Highlands Region of Queensland. It has a population of about 15,000 people and is the business capital of the region. The town is not near the coast, but you can get a hostel near the bank of the river if you want to wake up to it in the morning while staying in Emerald.

The Emerald Botanical Gardens are a must-visit when staying in the town. They are called a tropical paradise by the locals. Take a picnic lunch from your hostel when you go to the gardens to have a nice day out while getting in touch with nature. It is also a good place to embark on a walk early in the morning.

If you decide to leave your hostel for the day, take a trip down to the Fairbairn Dam and Lake Maraboon, both of which are prime scenic locations near Emerald.

You can swim in the lake if you want to, although other activities like water skiing are also available.
