Anakie is positioned at the Sapphire Gemfields ‘crossroads’ along the Capricorn Highway, and hosts Australia’s largest sapphire exhibition, the ‘Gemfest – Festival of Gems’ over four days each August. Visit the historic Anakie Hotel which had to be partially rebuilt in 1971 after a disgruntled patron blew out the front section with gelignite. You can also enjoy the community rejuvenated town dam area.
Anakie has your accommodation covered with a bed and breakfast, caravan park and hotel/motel. The nearest hospital is located at Emerald, and there is a service station, along with a local pub for meals and drinks.
