Your Beach-Side Haven

After your scenic journey into the region you'll want to stretch your legs and settle into your 1-bedroom beach-side oasis at the Grand Mercure C Bargara. Located just a short 200m walk from quirky cafes and boutique shops, relax to the sounds and views of the beach lining this coastal town from your balcony. After settling in, spend a little time falling in love with this piece of paradise with a leisurely stroll down the many pathways following Bargara's coast line.  


Australia’s Most Iconic Distillery

Begin your day on the right foot and with the right drink at the Bundaberg Rum Distillery. Immerse yourself in the history of past and present blenders, while uncovering the secret to distilling award-winning rum. Follow a Bundaberg Rum legend on a journey deep into the fully operating rum distillery. Take in the sights and smells before finishing your iconic tour sampling Bundaberg Rum's finest blends at the Tasting Bar.


Tantalize Your Tastebuds

Let your mouth water with delicious combinations of gourmet flavours from Water Street Kitchen to curb your lunchtime appetite. From crispy panko chicken katsu to smoked macherel salad and divine potato, herb & mustard croquettes, leave with your belly full and taste buds tingling. Don't forget to treat yourself to some sweets treats afterwards - we recommend trying the ginger panna cotta that simply melts in your mouth. 


Witness a Miracle

Each year people from across the globe come to Bundaberg to witness a miracle on a Mon Repos Nightly Turtle Encounter. From November to January watch as mother turtles haul themselves up sandy dunes to nest their clutches of eggs, and then from late-January to late-March return to witness baby hatchlings erupt from their nest before making a dash towards sea on the only ranger-guided turtle encounter on the East Coast. An experience unlike any other that will not only leave you in awe, but also with memories to last a lifetime.


Boutique Breakfast

Begin your summer morning sipping local aromatic chai before diving into a dragon fruit acai bowl overflowing with fresh juicy watermelon, strawberries, mango, banana and pineapple at the Windmill Cafe Bargara. Relax in the open garden surrounds while enjoying a wholesome breakfast listening to waves lapping the shore in the background.


Quench Your Thirst

Uncover the tricks of the trade for crafting classic ginger beer and flavour-filled brews on an immersive tour and tasting session at the Bundaberg Brewed Drinks Barrel. Wander through the history of Bundaberg Brewed Drinks and learn how their 14 delicious flavours are made before sampling the range and packaging up your favourites for the trip home. 


Explore the Reef 

Continue your iconic Bundaberg holiday exploring one of the greatest wonders of the world, the Southern Great Barrier Reef. Just a stone throw away from Bundaberg's coastline sits Lady Elliot Island and Lady Musgrave Island, the southern most coral cays that make up the Great Barrier Reef. Surrounded by effervescent water and overflowing with flora and fauna, grab your cameras and snorkels and spend the day swimming alongside curious turtles, majestic manta rays, giant marine life and tropical fish. If you prefer to keep your feet dry, fear not as you can explore the world below from the comfort of a glass bottom boat and play I-spy with the marine life swimming below the surface. Take it that one step further and truly disconnect from reality with a night on the reef at Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort with their homey Glamping Tents and Eco Villas with the beach at your door.
