Emerald

Trip Planner South Pacific  /  Australia  /  Queensland  /  Emerald
Emerald has massive rainfall and floods every year, but it's also a place where you can drink local wine while you peruse a display of locally mined gemstones in the town's quiet center. In fact, building a city in these wetlands was driven by the nearby sapphire and ruby gem fields. What was once swamp area is now part of Kidd Street near the town's center, and water has been rerouted throughout the city to make way for new development projects. Coal and cotton, as well as grapes, citrus, and grain, are a big part of the local economy for the town of over 12,000. Grapes being the most important of these, because where there are grapes, there is wine. Plan a Australia trip in moments using our itinerary builder.
