Not far from the heart of Bundaberg is Mon Repos Conservation Park, home to the largest concentration of nesting marine turtles on Australia’s east coast. With just a 15-minute drive, you can witness one of nature's miracles, the annual turtle nesting and hatching. From Bundaberg to the south, within an hour's drive, lies the Elliott and Burrum Coast National Park, treasured for its long sandy beaches, mangrove-lined estuaries and vibrant wildflowers.

Don't miss out on making a stop at the capricious Hinkler Hall of Aviation, located just outside Bundaberg. From Bundaberg, you can also access the southernmost part of the Great Barrier Reef, located about a 4-hour boat ride east. The Lady Elliot Island, a coral cay offering magnificent marine biodiversity and bird-watching, should top your must-visit list. Bundaberg is truly a springboard for an unforgettable road trip!
