Calliope State High School is a brand new, educational facility for the township of Calliope.

Calliope is situated 20km SSW of the port city of Gladstone, just off the Bruce Highway and Dawson Highway in Central Queensland. The town is named after the ship Calliope, which came to Port Curtis in 1854. Industries of the town and surrounds since that time have included gold mining, beef, timber and most recently shipping aligned with Aluminium, Coal, LNG and tourism.
