Bundaberg is a thriving city near the coast offering a variety of hotel, motel and resort accommodation.
Bargara, which is situated on the coast a few kilometres from Bundaberg offers accommodation more in the resort style, many with great sea views.
The Great Barrier Reef begins here with our two coral cays Lady Elliot and Lady Musgrave Islands and coral reefs fringing the shoreline. Try some of Australia's best shore diving in the Woongarra Marine Park right on our coastline - the Coral Coast - it's so easy.
With a natural environment including 15 National Parks, the region is also home to many special marine creatures. Humpback Whales pass close to shore en route to Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. Australia's largest mainland turtle rookery is situated at Mon Repos Beach and the coral isles are bird and turtle rookeries during summer months.
