Bundaberg is Australia’s southernmost gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and is a haven for nature lovers. Bundaberg really has something for everyone, whether you’re an adventure lover, leisure seeker, sweet tooth or history buff.
Situated on the beautiful banks of the Burnett river, the regional city is surrounded by some of Mother Nature’s most stunning beaches and national parks. Renowned for sugar cane and rum (just ask any proud local!), you’ll get the best drop in town from the Bundaberg Rum distillery. Opened in 1888, the distillery shot Bundaberg to fame making it a heritage hub for museums, galleries and historical buildings.
