Bundaberg Region

The Bundaberg Coral Coast and Country Region encompasses a diversity of experiences, making it an ideal holiday location. Throughout the region there is a sense of history mixed with wilderness adventure, rural experiences and warm country hospitality. All this and more is waiting for you to enjoy.

Called the Gateway to the Southern Great Barrier Reef - day tours, resort stays, wilderness camping and dive cruises are all on offer. With its pristine environment, the region is home to many marine creatures. Humpback whales pass close to the shoreline en route to Hervey Bay; and Australia's largest mainland turtle rookery is situated at Mon Repos Beach. Reef walk, snorkel and dive on one of the great wonders of the world, the Great Barrier Reef. Depart from Bundaberg onboard a luxury vessel for a day cruise to Lady Musgrave Island.

At the centre of the sugar cane country is Bundaberg, or "Bundy" as it's fondly known by the locals. Bundaberg is a progressive city of around 50000, is 14 kilometres from the Coral Coast, where the townships of Elliott Heads, Innes Park, Bargara and Burnett Heads boast some of the most pristine beaches in Australia. To the south is Buxton, one of the last unspoilt fishing villages, and Woodgate with an abundance of wildlife in the surrounding national parks.

Childers, a National Trust town, is set on top of rolling hills of red soil, and the northern Town of 1770 is the first place that James Cook landed in Queensland. The Central and North Burnett provides a contrast to the coastal areas of the region with its rugged gorges, imposing mountain ranges and serene rural views. 15 National Parks preserve and provide a diverse range of experiences, from rugged mountain hikes, sleepy riverside campgrounds and the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef.
