Bundaberg is surrounded by natural wonders and is filled with activities to do and places to drive. Bundaberg is the southernmost gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, where you can access the first two islands of the reef , Lady Elliot Island and Lady Musgrave Island, by ferry. Both of these islands showcase the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef, with stunning tropical fish of every colour, radiant coral, and even migratory whales. Popular with scuba divers and snorkelers, these islands are just a short ferry ride from the coast. Take your car hire to one of the ferry depots and book a ticket.
Bundaberg is also a 4-hour drive north of Brisbane. With many stunning national parks and coastal cities, it is a popular road trip to drive from Bundaberg to Brisbane or vice versa.
Bundaberg is more than just a stop along the way. It has everything to be considered a holiday destination of its very own, with National Parks, beaches, a zoo, museums, distilleries, wineries, shopping and more, all within driving distance.
Bundaberg is also a gateway to the famous Fraser Island. Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world, and the only place where rainforest grows on sand. Home to pure-blood dingos, unique flora and fauna, reptiles, amphibians, and birds, you can explore the island as part of a guided tour or on your own self-driving tour. The beaches on Fraser Island are considered among the best in the world, with many made up of silica sands that connect to crystal clear freshwater. Please note Thrifty vehicles cannot be driven on Fraser Island.
Bundaberg boasts some of the most beautiful natural locations on earth. Sir David Attenborough once declared the area of Northern Queensland to be the most beautiful place in the world. It's hard to debate the point, with so many natural wonders, including the Great Barrier Reef, Fraser Island, Bingera National Park, Elliot River State Forest, Cordalba State Forest, and more within driving distance of Bundaberg City and Bundaberg Airport.
If you are in Bundaberg from November through to January, the Mon Repos Turtle Encounter is a must. Mon Repos is the largest concentration of nesting turtles on the Eastern Australian mainland. Book online to join the waitlist, as this is a popular activity and a once in a lifetime experience. If you want to get even closer than watching them nest, swim with the turtles at Lady Musgrave or Lady Elliot Island, with the turtles making their home on the islands 12 months of the year.
