Why The Undiscovered Southern Great Barrier Reef Should Be On Your Travel Hit-List

Urban List

When one thinks of Queensland’s eastern coast, the mind drifts straight to either end of the state: The Gold Coast or Far North Queensland. But what if we told you that in between the two exists a region of untapped beauty? A place so serene that glamping by a creek teeming with platypus is trumped only by camping under the stars, floating above the waters of a paradisical, uninhabited lagoon.

Well, that place—known as the Bundaberg region—does indeed exist, and there are more than a few reasons it should be at the top of your travel hit list. For starters, just east of the coastline is The Great Barrier Reef’s southern tip, so the snorkelling, diving and island adventures come standard. And if you look west to the land, you’ll be treated to the finest artisan producers along with a slew of bucolic experiences that you’re going to want to bookmark immediately. And for those wondering, yes, this is the home of Bundaberg Rum, and yes, you can visit the distillery.
Best get bookmarking. Here is everything you need to do, see, eat and drink in the Bundaberg region.

More than just rum, it’s an experience for all the senses

More than just rum, it’s an experience for all the senses

Upon arriving at Australia’s largest craft distillery the scent of cane country wafts in the air. Sweet molasses, the hustle and bustle of a working sugar mill and maybe even the sound of a cane train arriving with a freshly cut batch of sugarcane in tow. Bundaberg Rum is in the beating heart of Bundaberg sugar cane country and the two go hand in hand with the fresh molasses (a by-product of cane production) carted over to the distillery to be made into this special rum that is proud to call Bundaberg home.
