Foodie's you have come to the right place!  

Bundaberg and the North Burnett's rich red soil and abundant rivers and surrounding seas are the source of never ending seasonal and varied produce.  The A-Z of food begins here from avocado to zucchinis and everything in between.

Fresh from the earth and sea, local trawlers pull up outside the door with fresh caught seafood daily while the region's iconic rich red soil and near perfect year round growing conditions ensure a plentiful harvest and a wealth of readily available, locally grown produce.   The North Burnett is known for its amazing citrus, pork and beef, with a few gourmet products thrown in for good measure.  

This is a food bowl nourishing the national with seafood, meat, fruit and vegetables finding their way to metropolitan fresh food markets around the country.  Our regional farmers are so passionate about their produce and you will be lucky enough to taste straight from paddock to plate while here.

The vast agricultural landscape will greet you whichever way you travel - the criss-cross grids and rows of seasonal produce create and exciting canvas of 'spot the fruit and veg".  Your trip will be lined with roadside stalls selling fresh produce like avocados, sweet potato, macadamias, pineapples, tomatoes, zucchinis, finger limes, strawberries, ginger, pumpkins, eggplants and citrus. If you don't see a farmer, there'll be a good old-fashioned honour box- and most items are not costly, so bring plenty of change with you. 

With so much fresh, local produce on the doorstep it's no surprise the region's cafes and foodie haunts are some of the tastiest around.  Ask a local which one is their favourite.
