Elliott Heads is a 15 minute drive from Bundaberg Central Business District and is surrounded by rural cane and small crop farms. Elliott Heads offers swimming at the patrolled surf beach or drop your boat in for a fish at Riverview. Sandstone cliffs form an interesting headland whilst the rocky foreshore is fun to explore.
Head up the river a little bit to find your own beach paradise but be careful of high tides! Be careful of shifting holes and shoals out on the sand flats.
Elliott Heads is the popular with jet-skiiers and kite-surfers as well as local fishermen. There are restricted areas for dogs in Elliott Heads.
