Make the most of your time in Bundaberg
Located some 385km from Brisbane Bundaberg is a bustling town that’s also known as the “Southern Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef”. You may however know Bundaberg from the famous local rum brand that bears the same name. The town is only 15km from the coast and there are some great local beaches to soak up the sun and swim in the temperate water (in the warmer months of course).
Catch the turtles at Mon Repos Conservation Park
Mon Repos Conservation Park is a turtle rookery located only a short drive from Bundaberg. The park is where the largest population of marine turtles on the Eastern Australian coast come to lay their eggs. If you’re lucky enough to visit between November and March you may get the privilege of witnessing these stunning ancient creatures coming ashore to lay their eggs.
Visit the home of the world famous Bundaberg Rum
Bundy Rum was originally distilled by a group of sugar millers as a way to use the waste molasses from refining sugarcane over 100 years ago. A visit to the Bundaberg Distilling Company really is a must-do on your trip to Bundaberg.
Take the one hour tour through the distillery and make sure you get some tastings in at the Bundy Bar. The historic process of distilling Bundaberg Rum is truly a fascinating experience.
Who would have thought a group of sugar millers with a vision to produce rum using molasses (a by-product of sugar refining), would create a product so popular it is still going strong over a hundred years later?
We can also recommend checking out the museum to get the full picture of the history of this Aussie legend. There are some great old photos and the classic old-school advertising will be sure to entertain.
Take a stroll through the Bundaberg Botanic Gardens
Bundaberg’s botanic gardens are a scenic paradise. Take a walk around the lake and along the wooden walkways or pack a picnic and see how many of the 100 or so species of bird you can spot. The gardens are full of wildlife but perhaps the most interesting thing to take in is the Hinkler House Museum. Bert Hinkler was the first person to fly from England to Australia in 1928 and is Bundaberg’s most famous son. Hinkler’s home in England was transported to Bundaberg and is now the Hinkler House Aviation Museum that sits peacefully in the gardens. The museum is open from 10am to 4pm daily.
Bundaberg is a great place to visit and there’s plenty of options for the whole family. Make the most of your time in Bundaberg with the freedom and flexibility of a rental car.
