The Location
As the southern Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, this town offers a great access point to Hervey Bay, Lady Elliot and Lady Musgrave Islands. From Bundaberg, visitors and locals can take boat trips for fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving in the pristine Coral Sea waters. Scuba is very popular in the area with many natural and artificial ship wrecks as well as the amazing coral reef formations of the Great Barrier Reef. On land, Bundaberg offers a great variety of cafes, restaurants and boutique shops but perhaps the best-known export from the area is Bundaberg Rum.
The Wide Bay District is well known for its relaxed lifestyle, natural beauty and local attractions. Bundaberg is located at the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef with access to coral islands and scuba diving.  Possibly the most famous beach in Bundaberg is Mon Repos.  Located 15 kms east of Bundaberg, Mon Repos is known for having the largest concentration of nesting marine turtles on the eastern Australian mainland and is considered one of the two largest loggerhead turtle rookeries in the South Pacific Ocean. For a taste of the Australian bush, Cania George, located in the hinterland west of Monto, is popular for bushwalks and abseiling.
Fraser Coast includes the World-Heritage listed Fraser Island, which has a unique and unspoilt landscape including rainforests with abundant fresh water lakes and crystal clear creeks.  From July to November, during their annual migration, Humpback whales take time out in the protected waters of Hervey Bay.  The whales perform a variety of behaviours providing a spectacular display for visitors and locals.
The area is well serviced with 52 early childhood education centres, 10 primary schools, 3 public secondary schools and 2 private secondary schools. There is also a campus of the University of Central Queensland which offers undergraduate and postgraduate degree level courses in IT, business, law, engineering and more.
