Bundaberg is not just the gateway to the wonders held within the Southern Great Barrier Reef, it’s a region that offers the perfect mixture of country and coastline. We’re talking natural encounters on and off the water, farm-gate tasters (which will have the entire family wishing you packed the elastic-waisted pants) and fun yet educational experiences the kids can take back to their classroom show-and-share.
Mon Repos Turtle Centre is special! It supports the largest concentration of nesting marine turtles on the eastern Australian mainland and has the most significant loggerhead turtle nesting population in the South Pacific region. The success of nesting and hatching turtles at Mon Repos is critical for the survival of the endangered loggerhead turtle.
Bundaberg Regional Galleries are two vibrant gallery spaces dedicated to providing premier arts and cultural experiences in the Bundaberg region. Both gallery spaces boast a year-round program of local, touring and national art exhibitions, visiting artists, workshops, artist talks, educational programs, kids activities, guided tours, gift shop facilities, public outreach programs and much more.
The Hinkler Hall of Aviation is a tourist attraction and visitor experience operated by the Bundaberg Regional Council. The Hinkler Hall of Aviation pays tribute to Bert Hinkler as a pioneer of flight and as a person who was significant in the advancement of aviation during the early 20th century.
From the moment you set out to explore Bundaberg’s National Parks you’ll be immersed in dramatic landscapes of rugged gorges, imposing mountain ranges and serene sea views. Delve a little deeper and you can come face to face with rock wallabies and witness turtles hatching at one of Australia’s most significant nesting sites. Diverse natural surroundings and exotic wildlife – it’s all in a day around these parts.
The Southern Great Barrier Reef is truly where great begins. A bucket list destination unlike any other, just a hop, skip and a jump from Bundaberg, Gladstone and Capricorn, its idyllic white sand beaches, pristine coral reef, and warm blue waters provide the ideal setting to swim with the turtles and discover giant marine life.
