Clinton is a town and a suburb of Gladstone in the Gladstone Region, Queensland, Australia. In the 2011 census, Clinton had a population of 5,917 people.

History

The town was named on 5 January 1970. On 10 December 1988 the suburb of Clinton was created from the merger of the former suburbs Clinton North and Clinton South. The name Clinton is derived from the County of Clinton (the cadastral administrative division containing Gladstone).

Clinton State School opened on 29 January 1974.

On 1 April 2010, a Priority Development Area was declared in Clinton with the aim of reducing housing pressure created with the growing mining industry in the Gdladsonr area. 26 hectares (64 acres) of government land bounded by the Dawson Highway, Harvey Road and Keppel Avenue were released for residential land development.
