Bundaberg North Burnett | Things to See and Do


‘Bundy’ as locals call it, is one of those regions where you can really put the brakes on and relax. So, take a little extra off and explore all that it has to offer.

  • Home to the largest turtle rookery in the South Pacific, Mon Repos beach is where you can witness the turtle life-cycle unfold from November to March.
  • Get up close and personal with the resident turtles and manta rays just a few steps off the pristine beach of Lady Elliot Island - and snap that turtle selfie you’ve always wanted!
  • Swap your fins for hiking boots and get exploring the region’s coastal gems, lakes, gorges and rural landscapes while hearing stories from colourful locals.
  • A visit to Bundy isn’t complete without sampling its iconic products including Bundaberg Rum and Ginger Beer, not to mention wineries, fresh seafood and the creamiest homemade macadamia ice-cream you’re likely to find.
