Bundaberg is home to a number of natural and man-made attractions that will certainly provide everyone with a fun and fulfilling holiday experience, no matter your age. After finding and settling into your Baffle Creek accommodation, here are five activities you can enjoy when you visit Bundaberg.
1. Bundaberg Botanic Gardens
A visit to the Bundaberg Botanic Gardens should be in order, especially if you love plants and flowers. Located in the northern part of the city, this 27-hectare garden is home to a lake, 114 species of birds, hidden Japanese Gardens, and hundreds of species of plants and flowers. The grounds also provide an excellent spot for a picnic.
2. Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery
For art lovers out there, there’s the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery (or BRAG as fondly called by the locals). The gallery showcases artworks by some of the best artists in Bundaberg and beyond. It also has a Kidz Corner and self-guided activities that will definitely appeal to visitors of all ages.
3. Basin Rock Pool
Want to cool off after wandering around the city streets? Be sure to head from your Deepwater accommodation to one of Bundaberg’s best-kept secrets: the Basin Rock Pool. Located at the end of Kellys Beach, this man-made rock pool allows you to discover marine life in a semi-protected ocean-filled swimming pool. Plus, it’s a great place for snorkelling.
4. Cania Gorge National Park
If you want to experience the great outdoors, a visit to Cania Gorge National Park is a must. The national park has eight bushwalks that give you great views of towering cliffs, caves, and sheltered gorges. There are also habitats for native wildlife and a picnic area near Three Moon Creek.
5. Mon Repos Walking Path
Once you find accommodation near Bundaberg, be sure to explore the coastline from Bargara to the Mon Repos. This 6km return walking tour is so easy that even children can complete it. It provides you with stunning vistas of sand dunes, mangroves, and Woongarra scrub remnants. There is also a tidal lagoon, rock pools, and a Kanaka wall built by south-sea islanders more than a hundred years ago.
