10 Free Things to Do in Bundaberg and the North Burnett

Short on cash? Check out these free things to do!

1. Hit the Beach

From surf beaches like Neilson's, to the calm-family friendly waters of The Basin, to a kite-surfers haven at Elliott Heads, there is a beach to suit everyone... + it's free!

2. Go Hiking

Explore the sandstone wilderness of Cania Gorge National Park or take the sunrise hike to the summit of Mt Walsh National Park.


3. Take in the View

Take a drive to the top of The Hummock, an extinct volcano, for panoramic view of Bargara and the coral coast. Take in the patchwork of farming lands and an expansive view of the ocean.


4. Take in the Art

Take in the art at the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery and Childers Art Space with ever-changing exhibitions featuring local and visiting artists. Have you spotted some of our massive murals around town? Make sure you snap a selfie and #visitbundaberg when you're out and about.



5. Wander in Woodgate Beach

One of the most serene spots in our slice of paradise, Woodgate Beach offers 16km of pristine, protected beach and the friendly personality to match. Spend the day strolling the esplanade and swimming in the warm waters. While some hot chips might set you back a few dollars, a chat with the friendly locals is always on the house.


6. Get Wet and Wild

The North Burnett is the place to get your boat wet. After the rains Cania Dam offers stunning scenery and a glass-smooth waters and Paradise Dam is a year-round hotspot for skiing and tubing fanatics.


7. Go Beach 4WD-ing

Let some air out of your tyres and hit the road less travelled. There are many 4WD tracks around the region but Burrum Coast National Park, surrounding Woodgate Beach, offers an interesting bush-to-beach option.



8. Take a Scenic Stroll

Stroll along the Burnett Rver at Riverside Parklands, before making your way into the main street and taking in the friendly atmosphere and architecturally exquisite buildings. For something more coastal, take a walk from Elliott Heads to Bundaberg Port Marina and stop for gelato or coffee on the way at the local take away and boutique shops.


9. North Burnett Art Trail

Venture on a scenic drive inland of Bundaberg and uncover talented artists and sculptures throughout the North Burnett. From towering silo murals to rustic sculptures and spectacular water towers, this trail has it all!


10. Reef within reach

Just off the shores of our coral coast are fringing reefs thriving with marine life and soft coral formations. If you're a confident and strong swimmer, don your snorkel and masks, put on your flippers and dive into a reef within reach at Barolin Rocks. This is a non-patrolled area, so we highly recommend bringing a friend along to enjoy the experience with you!
