Summary

The Southern Great Barrier Reef is one of the most amazing places on earth to discover, nurture and reward your love of turtles. By night the turtles are busy nesting and laying their eggs along the Bundaberg region’s lush coastline (from November to March), but by day the Mon Repos Walking Track explores the park behind the dunes by winding its way along the foreshore.

About the region

Bundaberg is a major centre within Queensland’s broader Wide Bay-Burnett geographical region and the headquarters of the Bundaberg Regional Council. The city is on the Burnett River, approximately 385 kilometres (239 mi) north of the state capital, Brisbane, and 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) inland from the coast. The local Aboriginal group is the Taribelang Bunda people.

The first Europeans in the area were timbergetters and co-founders of Bundaberg, John and Gavin Steuart who arrived in 1867. The town was surveyed in 1870. By 1881 it was gazetted as a municipality (the Borough of Bundaberg). It grew rapidly into a town by 1902 and a city by 1913.
