Bundaberg is the signpost signalling where the Southern Great Barrier Reef
begins, including the World Heritage-listed marine park of Lady Elliot Island.
What islands to visit on the Southern Great Barrier Reef
Grab a snorkel and mask and explore fringing reefs directly off Bundaberg’s beaches.
Spot the turquoise coral cay fringe of Lady Elliot Island
from hundreds of feet above as you fly in. Dive with resident manta rays
and dolphins and swim with green sea and loggerhead turtles
in the protected breeding waters.
Witness a real-life nature documentary on Lady Elliot Island with 57 species of birds nesting, turtle hatchlings running down the beach, and humpback whales showing off on their annual migration. Tour the reef in a glass bottomed boat, join an informative walk around the island or try to get one of the locals to let you in on their secret reef surf spots.
