Kellys beach

Kelly’s Beach is one of Bundaberg’s favored seaside destinations. With its extensive shoreline, tidal pools and low-rolling waves, Kelly’s Beach is a great spot for a family beach trip or a seaside getaway. Wander along the 0.4-mile (600-meter) stretch of sandy shore and admire the pristine ocean views. Play in the waves or enjoy a sheltered swimming experience in the large tidal pool. Wander down to the wide beach from the tree-lined esplanade and feel the golden sands beneath your toes. At the center of the beach, you’ll find a shallow lagoon that feeds into the ocean via a narrow creek. Stroll north to find the large tidal pool, which is ideal for younger children. Relax in the warm, protected waters as you wade around the pool. Jump into the ocean waters to play in the low beach breaks.

Lady Musgrave

3000 acres of living reef seemingly plucked from the pages of an aspirational travel guide, Lady Musgrave Island is one of the most magical places in the world. Situated on the Southern Great Barrier Reef, just a stone’s throw from the Bundaberg coastline. The sun-soaked waters and effervescent coral reefs offer a surreal backdrop for an underwater experience that is like nothing on earth. Teeming with bird life above the water, and giant marine life below the water, you can swim with the turtles, dive alongside the manta rays, dance with the dolphins and witness the whales play.

Amandine Lavender Farm and Tinaberries

Take the gravelled driveway to Amandine Lavender Farm and admire the country garden along the way. The French inspired gift shop is jam packed with lavender goodness from skin care to lavender fudge complete with secateurs for some take home lavender flowers.

Day trip to Lady Elliot Island

The island is small by nature, making it easy to walk around and the ideal place to snorkel directly from the shore to the reef. There is a modest eco-resort that has been carefully built to complement the natural environment, leaving a small eco footprint - a priority for staff and visitors alike. There’s a glass bottom boat tour to the outer reef to snorkel with the turtles, manta rays and abundant marine life. A day ticket includes a history tour of the island’s flora and fauna, full buffet lunch, boat ride, snorkelling and plane transfers.

Bargara Beach Hotel

A trip to Bargara or any coastal town for that matter isn’t complete without checking out the local watering hole. By watering hole, we mean a brand-new hotel that adorns the beach front. (Formerly a modest pub that was damaged by fire in 2019.) The re-incarnation of the Bargara Hotel is modern in design with coastal hues and a new white brick façade, retaining its friendly charm.
