Released today 22 Jan 2018, Wotif has announced the winners of the inaugural Wotif Australian Town of the Year awards and Bundaberg made runner up number 4!

In a media release Wotif stated “With half of all Australians (49%) looking to make their next trip a local one and two thirds (67%) of us seeing domestic travel as a way to reinvest in the local economy***, the awards, based on a Wotif pricing and demand index*, call out the local hotspots which should be on every Aussie bucket list this year.

Taking out the number one spot was Mackay, Qld!Congratulations from Bundaberg!

1. Shepparton, VIC: This Goulburn River town is home to so much more than SPC tinned fruit, such as the multiple art centres, including antique cars to ceramics and paintings you can purchase.
2. Mildura, VIC: Surprisingly famous for producing more grapes than oranges – while the juice misleads all of us, we’re happy to settle for wine.
3. Bunbury, WA: The best place to go for a dip with a bottlenosed dolphin.
4. Bundaberg, QLD: Rum, rum, glorious rum! Need we say more?
5. Lakes Entrance, VIC: Never underestimate the fun you can have at a Shell Museum, and the Ninety Mile Beach, that’s actually 140 miles!
6. Townsville, QLD: Great Barrier Reef. That is all.
7. Port Macquarie, NSW: One of the classic Aussie holiday spots fondly known to many of us as ‘Port Mac’.
8. Byron Bay, NSW: Always has been, always will be the trendiest surf town in Australia.
9. Batemans Bay, NSW: Home to some of the best snorkeling trails in NSW.
10. Echuca, VIC: Known as ‘The Murray’s living legend’, take a trip back in time in this historic town.

We are very excited that Bundaberg has made it to number 4, as a runner up! This really shines a spotlight on Bundaberg and the North Burnett region.
