Bundaberg is a thriving agricultural, tourism and business hub for the Wide Bay Burnett Region. Just 14km to the Coral Coast which hosts the small coastal communities of Burnett Heads, Bargara, Innes Park, Coral Cove, Elliott Heads and Woodgate, Bundaberg has the best of the beach and the bush.
Bundaberg is situated at the southern tip of the world heritage listed Southern Great Barrier Reef which is home to the Bunker Group of Islands of Lady Elliott Island, Lady Musgrave Island and a chain of islands stretching right up to Heron Island. This magical southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef is where visitors can dive & snorkel viewing pristine coral, swim with manta rays, turtles and spot over 1200 varieties of fish without the crowds. World renowned Mon Repos welcomes home the largest nesting population of Loggerhead Turtles (November – March) in the South Pacific Region. Critical to the survival of these precious turtles, the scientific staff at this globally significant breeding site want to share this truly memorable experience with you making this encounter like no other.
The Bundaberg Region supplies 25% of our Nations fresh produce and is fast growing as a foodie destination with its passionate chefs and their award winning bistros and cafes like Indulge, Leaf n Bean, City Limits, Grunskies, The Brewhouse, Foodworks Deli and Riverfeast.
Whether it is turtles, whales, food tours or wine trails, there is enough to entertain all the family, visitors or to escape for a weekend getaway.
