The annual Gladstone Scarecrow Festival began in 1998 when locals came up with the idea to raise funds for the local school. Each November the fields around the settlement are dotted with carefully crafted scarecrows of all descriptions, including satirical renditions of public figures and politicians. The festival attracts hundreds of people.
