Things to do

Bundaberg and the Burnett Region are a great starting point to visit the majestic islands that make up the Southern Great Barrier Reef, such as Lady Elliot and Lady Musgrave Islands. Only a 25-minute flight from Bundaberg Airport will land you at Lady Elliot Island - home of the manta ray with over 700 individual manta rays known to be living in the crystal clear waters. Turtles are in abundance here – so be sure to plan a day trip snorkelling around the island for an ultimate water activity.

A great day trip and only 7km from Bundaberg is Mon Repos Beach where you can watch as thousands of turtles lay their eggs, and then later celebrate the arrival of thousands of tiny hatchlings.

No visit to Bundy is complete without a visit to visit to the Bundaberg Barrel or the Bundaberg Distiller. With the abundance of sugarcane grown here, it's farmed to produce the famous Bundaberg Rum or its ginger beer.

For a country town, Bundaberg and the Burnett Region are sure packed with exciting activities and excursions to do.
